Capturing an image is often a matter of success….and….speed.
Tediously endeavoured artworks, tend to appear to be tedious, laborious and possibly even dull….
Your portfolio can be full of the most wonderful artworks, but close examination could reveal a very staid and even stale presentation and for that reason, I would suggest that occasionally you take a subject as in this artwork, one that is “light” in subject matter, but also a delightful insight into another world.
Working quickly helps too when presenting a “lightweight” subject as over- detailed work can make the artwork rather too studied – with the possibility of being dull…..
This work is a compilation of several photographs that I took and has been executed (quickly to catch the mood) in watercolour on paper. I hope you enjoy this particular illustration.
