kaleidoscope by koyamori kaleidoscope by koyamori
I tried out masking fluid for the first time, and I must say it's quite convenient and can make for interesting effects. (Used for the patterns on the balloon things.)

Her name is Camilla, and she's from a story about a group of entrepreneurs living on blimps I'm working on. :3

Tools: Watercolour, 300gsm cold pressed watercolour paper, size 4 brush, crow quill

p.s. And yes, after weeks of using no colours at all, I went a little crazy. :heart:

I'm glad you went crazy with the colors! This way the whole thing looks like a kaleidoscope! I absolutely love how her dress is completely solid and the paint splatters on it. Wonderful piece!

Camilla looks like a cross between Alice from Alice in Wonderland and Hermione from Harry Potter...

The colours are beautiful :)

You know she is a bit like that in personality too.
Must be associating the eccentric brainy types with voluminous hair haha:'D

Masking fluid can be a whole lot of fun. I used to use it all the time in class.

Anyways, this is a very beautiful painting. Such bright and lively colors and textures. I especially like how her shirt is gray and makes the character stand out against all of the pattern that you're known for. ;) One of my favs from you.

gorgeous!:heart: the splattered paint is an awesome effect for the balloons, it fits well in thier patterns and shapes. the girl is very pretty, I love her hair and the way her pupils are dialated, the purple is super pretty. the positions of her hands are very elegent and the kaliedoscope(i'm guessing) is a nice touch to that. I also like the way you didn't go into detail on her shirt, how it looks like her arms just pop out of nowhere, excellent use of lining. the story sounds pretty cool, will you post it here on DA or any other website?

She is using a spyglass, but I thought to calling the piece kaleidoscope due to the trippy colouration haha:'D
I'm typing the story at the moment, hopefully there's somewhere to upload stories on the internet.^^
