Boredom by KmyeChan Boredom by KmyeChan

My artwork for the Arthenice group show in Nantes, France! :D

If you haven't read my journal about the show, it's a caritative group show (we're about sixty illustrators taking part), and all funds raised from the sales will go to research against cancer.

I finally finished my piece, something about boredom, and long rainy sunday afternoons... It's inspired by a song by Mathilde en Juillet, a young French singer who passed away from cancer, and whom we'll be paying tribute to with this show.
I'm in such a rush at the moment, loads of projects going one and not enough time...! :)

Enjoy!

Pour dire comme je suis distraite, je viens de voir que tu es une compatriote donc j'ai raté une occasion de parler en français !
Donc dans la langue de Molière, j'adooore ton travail :)

I like the warm , monochrome colouring.
I like the scenery at the window, her pose.
but...I don't like her hair style. kind of. I wish I could see her whole expression :)
on the other side...it's ok like that and leaves some kind of mystery.

The original is an ovale like that, more or less. I cleaned up by adding white layer in Photoshop and taking off the ovale shape in the middle to show the picture, like I would do to frame a picture for real. :)

Very much feels like a lazy sunday afternoon, where one has nothing to do but to wait as time passes by.

Seriously, it's beautiful. A wonderful dedication, too. :heart:

May I ask how you enter a group show?

Well, usually you are contacted by the organizing committee. Some galleries organize group shows, and then they'll pick artists who sent them their portfolio and some others that they approached directly.

The depth of tone and detail in this piece is phenomenal! Her expression clinches the whole thing, it is a perfect portrayal of boredom! I also really love the slender lines you have used to create lighter tones, although it does make her look like she's prematurely aged! Haha!
All in all, a wonderful piece, and I really love the tonal colours you have used, they really set the fairytale scene with the browns and creams!
One final thing (Yes, long comment) is that I LOVE the rain you have done on the window, it looks realistic, and I didn't notice it right until the end!
Brilliant!
