Ophelia by Achen089 Ophelia by Achen089
I have been lacking inspiration the last few weeks so i have been adding (water)colour to older sketches. I sketched the figure of this about a year ago ( you can see it here achen089.deviantart.com/art/Op… ) and had really high hopes for it; i almost regret i decided to paint it at such an uninspiring time.
It's probably the first time i didn't even plan things like colour palette, background etc like i usually do, i just had the figure and added colour straight away, building shapes and whatnot along the way. So there are a lot of issues, mainly with the perspective, depth, colours, how water works, all in all it was very confusing for me working without a solid plan but i'm somehow proud i did something to challenge myself, you know?
I would like to give the subject another try though..in the future. :D

Any suggestions for the future piece will be welcome! :D

Pencil, watercolours, white gouache / 22x31 cm.
