New work ‘Starry Night’

Hello:) I’d like to show you my new artwork ‘Starry Night’..It’s a little bit different style from what I usually do.

I saw this beautiful nature photo, and I was inspired to paint something dreamy and unique.


First I started painting the lake.. I used Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks

Adding some silver ink


Using a cotton ball, I took some blue ink from the lake and started painting the sky

Using pastel, I added some trees

After that, I added little rabbits and a fox using pencil. Then I cut out a paper to create the shapes of a bird, attached them to threads, and suspended them from the top of the artwork, so that they look like floating/flying.Starry night by Yumi Kudo
