Rainbow river by MelodyoftheWolf Rainbow river by MelodyoftheWolf
Finally! Finally I am able to paint something other then ponies! Here is another complex watercolor scenery painting!

This is an entry for :iconhkepoetry:'s contest! [link] I also designed it to my mothers liking, so I am going to give it to her as a gift. She fancies Mulan. I do hope you can tell it is Mulan. She plays the role as the "geisha" that was an option to choose from in her contest along with butterflies. I also wanted to add brilliant colors.

It was a challenge. Taking between 40-45 hours of my time, but, I certainly enjoyed doing it and it turned out pretty decent. It looks better in person. :/ I have an unfortunate camera and am not good at all in regards to photography.

I did use references! I am definitely not a pro watercolor artist here. I do have a lot of things I need to work on. But here are the references I used for this painting. [link] [link] [link] [link]

What you need to do it set the work on the ground and take a picture of it like that. And take the picture where only the work is shown. Thats how I do it. You don't see nothing but the work.

Your paintings are worthy of good money seriously ;.; Id hang that in my house for sure.
You did a really really great job. The detail is great, the colors blend so well and theyre really vibrant, and everything feels so soft.
Very amazing :D



;-; Jealous of your painting skills lol I could never do this sort of thing.
