Sunflower by Kuume Sunflower by Kuume
The cooling waves in summer
Berries that drank the vapor
Bifurcating branches carry the green
A fiery sunflower aslumber on the field.


Watercolor/A4.

Your marks sometimes read as a musical score. Your images resonate with a beautiful sound of colour.

Wow, what a beautiful thing to say. Indeed, I can sense shapes as sort of visible sound waves in space and often consider music I'm listening while I'm drawing to be a sort of a co-creator. I'm so glad someone picked that up. :) Thank you for the comment, coming from an artist with such vision it's a great compliment! :D

Ooh! this is just heavenly! I love the meeting between the elements in your works! She looks like a spring goddess rising from the waters to the warmth of the fire! :aww:

The lower portion of this piece actually reminds me of an undersea sort of a thing....I love the contrasting use of blue and orange!

Shimatta! I should have scrolled down to this one earlier. Wow- this is another beautiful job- your use of color, the overall design- it's as if one of your pencil pictures had suddenly come to Oz- not that there was anything at all wrong with Kansas in this context, I hasten to add. But is one thing to have cleverly suggested color as you do in your pencil work, and quite another to see the same disciplined attention brought to bear on the delicate use of color as we see here. I am often telling my students to do their preliminary sketching first, because when they get into color, -which is after all pure emotion- they won't be able to concentrate on anything else. Such advice is wasted on you;I get the impression the colors were already present in your mind as you drew this. A truly joyous celebration of the energies of summer, with only a hint of melancholy to make it poignant. I'm curious about the eye-shaped figure in the lower right, but content to remain so if you wish.

I'm really happy you like it so much, even though I personally can't see as much merit in it, and the process of painting this wasn't really that discliplined, save for parts of the dress. Coloring is difficult exactly because of the emotions - mine change direction in a split second until I have used up the entire spectrum. I'd like to have a much more firm grasp of values of light and dark and texture when painting with color, but that's a matter of technique and I really need to study it a bit more from books and from nature. The things I see in my mind's eye have far less colors than the things I paint, but the scenes change rapidly. Which makes me think, I should give drawing comics another try, something on the basis of a poem of mine... Oh and the eye - I was reminded by the creatures in Holding the Crescent and Suspending the Sunset. What does that mean, then? I don't know. I find my drawings have been less cerebral lately.

Wish I could be of some help, but it's difficult (one of many things) this far removed. I really did like the piece, somehow it conveys a sense of growth and renewal(like the chapter of Anna K. I just finished) and the balance of cool and warm colors was beautiful. Color is emotion, or an expression of it, whether one is conscious of the connection or not. There is a great deal goes on in the brain, isn't there, that can't precisely be classified as thought, or perhaps the brain is too limited a locus...
