mai and suki by © Karin  Taylor

mai and suki i drew this today and also painted it this afternoon…a change of plan…was about to catch up on RB but a few different things happened and i ended up creating instead…oh well, hard to stop the flow once it’s going :)

mai means brightness, dance
suki means beloved

a little pencil drawing in my visual arts diary (A2) using a mechanical pencil and a wet/dry charcoal pencil.. photographed and uploaded to Photoshop, where I painted and added layers to it…using my Wacom Tablet… i hope you like it…i think it’s probably one of my favourites now from my asia series

    Your passion flows so freely, Karin, I am sure there must be some nights when you are too “awake” to even go to bed!
    That’s what I call, really “living your dream”.

  • Hi Keith, thank you what a lovely response…yes, you’re right…it’s too true….unfortunately there are many nights like that…but they are catching up with me….LOL
