Simple yet elegant scene from a picture never made; the setting, styling & overall feel is very eclectic and brings together little pieces from various fields (I see hints of Art Nouveau, Classical Antiquity, 80s~90s era, a flexible version of Hipster, summer casual... gaaaaahhh ) and melds them altogether for a style very unique yet recognizable. The character enjoying the tea is gorgeous with lean yet full curves and a working of a monochromatic, sleeveless style dress to help supplement such wholesome qualities; her rich golden locks frame a very tranquil, near Zen babyface demeanour which only makes this artwork all the more soulful.
I can't put it specifically but what this piece and universe conveys really feels... special. Thank You for sharing this and Congratulations on the Daily Deviation!
Wow, I like how this is framed, as if the girl in the middle is the subject of conversation among other people. It makes me wonder why. I love how you portrayed a story in this -- it's wonderful! The brushes are also lovely <3
Thanks!! And yes, she was/is actually a huge influence in giving me the confidence to do the work I wanted. I found her work about two years ago when I was really struggling through what I thought I had to do [fantasy illustration] and what I didn't even know I wanted [everything in the animation world]. So now I'm slowly trying to figure out how I want to paint and work, it's been really exciting so far.
