Good Morning Sunshine!

Incomplete Shibui Found Image Art

Some Shibui Found Image Art just takes time to solve. This is a prime example of that.

  1. Making the trees become believable means seperating tops so the work with the trunk of the trees. The trunks were runs of watercolor when tipping the paper. Leaving some as color, and withougt outling them pushes the leave back, outling brings the forward. With this kind of Shibui the pen has to be super fine (an 005).
  2. One run cam from the top, so it is my goal to make it look like it is coming from the top, is natural to the image. Note everything can work well, and then there is always one or two things. The oddities, that if you do everything else, this will work themselves in___a viewer will not notice them when the illusions of the image is done. He will likely find them when he studies the shibui and have a what the heck moment.
  3. Those dark red brown splatters of color in the birch trees were there, so I am leaving them as leaves.
  4. The goal is to create a distant mountain to the right, using darker colors.
  5. Creating a darker trees for a horzon line.
  6. There are a lot of leaves that need to become different plants. Depending on my success here it will become 3D and not flat. It requires fair;y sharp points to work this small in-between.
  7. The undergrown I am working in dark blue and maybe a dark purple to have shadow.

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
