First Morning Of Summer by KmyeChan First Morning Of Summer by KmyeChan
Copyright © Kmye Chan 2013. All rights reserved.

I challenged myself to use brighter colours, and try to recreate that strong, warm light of daybreak in summer. Not sure I either succeeded or really like the end result but I had a lot of fun doing this little picture.
(Also - I think I needed to celebrate the arrival of sunlight. We've been waiting for summer for AGES here in the UK!)

I don't comment much on your work, but you are one of a handful of artists that I follow (mostly, I hang out on the literature side) and I always enjoy your work. I find this one to be particularly charming.

Is it terribly original? No, but it really doesn't need to be. Your style is so well defined and your technique so well developed, that this just works.

Wonderful work with the shadows, the warm colors, and her tilted face - the contented look on her face is spot on. That is exactly how a fresh, warm morning feels, and even without the title, I would have known that this was morning.
What do you think?

To start with I love your work,

It's not the mot uniqe pice but it has a realy good outline and you did really good with the coloringBut the dark part that start in the middle of her neck I really don't understand that part of your artwork. And it took away a little of the light feeling of the pice. But the way you draw people is a not the most common way to draw people so it makes i it a little more uniqe.
I wish that you mabe had done a little more with the three and the flowers :)

the intricacy of her hair is absolutely stunning and I adore the length of her neck.
This stylisation is really very pretty and delicate and I dig it. Plus that little orange highlight on her cheekbone is a very nice way to incorporate the oranges of the fruits. Fantastic work!

what kind of fineliner do you use for your drawings? 
I guess you also used watercolour for your paintings, but whenever I draw the outlines, it smudges really easily.
I wonder how to prevent this smudging.. could you help me? Thanks

I use mostly Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens and UniPin Fine Line pens (plus some random Staedtler pigment liners and Copic multiliners). None of these bleed with watercolors for me (if I let them dry at least 15-20 minutes before adding paints). If you find that they smudge, it may be that the paper you are using is not absorbent enough. :)
