    This palette I love; bold and Earthy, contrasted with delicate footprints of civilisation. Wonderful Tokiko.

  • Thanks DAMcD. this is the “making of….”,. I painted this years ago. one day the critic came but she didn’t like it. so i scrub and scrub until the most of forms disappear, then i abandoned it until one day i see something in the light. so I finished it:D

    Where ever the lines leave off, my imagination fills in. This is another cool use of watercolor, Tokiko.

  • Thanks Maryann. i started to paint without clear line when i forget how it looked. Then i realized i can suggest continuous depth beyond vision this way. then it became the way of painting my emotion as well. I see the similar technique in images made by many RB artists.
