Y3 Art Resolutions #5: Geisha 2-v3

Art Resolutions is the third year of an evolving resolution to elevate every day by looking at art and creativity as a life’s philosophy.

After yesterday’s close up, Geisha has decided that it is not enough. She wants full exposure and so I pulled the original scan into the digital drawing program and began again. Her hair a bit different. Only a suggestion of what the switchback design will be in the final treatment. I like the little pink blossom very much. And love the parasol. Again, I could leave her this way and feel fully satisfied that this has a certain completeness about it. The lovely thing about digital painting is that you can generate as many versions of a composition as you wish–or leave it when it finds you satisfied and never struggle with “what ifs” or “should I’s.”
