This is one of my favorite Shibui’s. It is a first of its kind. The water is intentional as is the boat and its shadow, the sand, and the water’s edge. The trees in the distance.
The top of this image was created through blotting.
Note: To create a Shibui Found Image Art you work with the edges of what you find, with flowers I often find a center something or other, and build-out. Although a shape will begin something.
There are a couple blown, wet mediums hanging down like stamen. Leaves are intentional.
In creating this Shibui, and according to what I found, I wanted to work with realism.
