I finished a new large . It's probably the most detailed drawing I ever made.

The main figure in the drawing is based on a picture I took at the Gion Matsuri in some years ago. It is a dancer performing the old Japanese court dance "Ran-Ryo-O".

I used Derwent Inktense and Conté Aquaralle pencils as well as watercolour paint (various brands). The paper is Arches 56cmx76cm 300g/m2 rough watercolour paper.

#inktober today I was so motivated to sketch! and then I had to do groceries and when I went outside it became colder, and I am still a bit sick myself with a cold.. so I was standing in the cold wind trying to sketch.

this is our local lidl supermarket with a construction going on on the sidewalk and bikelane, a worker laying some pavement stones, and the faceless lidl building in the background. ok, this lidl is at least in an older building.

Painting complete!

Like the song from that Disney movie I’ve never seen, it’s so shiny!

I guess this is technically #inktober since I wanted to use the gold ink over watercolor, but it ended up being more of a watercolor piece than an ink piece.
