I wanted to show you this painting’Dubrovnik’, which I painted after I was inspired by the trip I had in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Beautiful Adria sea and the old town really inspired me. It’s a place I would love to go back again.
I loved this picture I took in Dubrovnik, so I decided to paint based on this photograph, but I wanted to paint in rather abstract way.
Started drawing using colour pencils.
Painting the sky and the sea using Winsor & Newton drawing inks
Painting roofs in Daler Rowney Fluorescent Red acrylic paint. I like the striking colour
Painting the sea with acrylic paints. I used an ink roller to to give some texture.
I’m back from my holiday in Japan. This year I stayed in one of the Southern islands of Japan called ‘奄美大島 Amami Oshima’, as my parents moved there from Yokohama this year. It’s a very beautiful island with subtropical climate surrounded by the beautiful nature and the sea.
Here are some photos of the island I took..
When I was looking through the photos, I was inspired to paint the seascape in watercolour.
This beach is called Honohoshi Kaigan, which is famous for the round stones and noises they make when the waves hit.
Started painting from the rocks..
Then the sea
Adding the sky and the beach
Added people, more details on the beach to suggest the round stones.
Then splashes of white paints to suggest the waves.
