Rhubarb by rlhIllustration Rhubarb by rlhIllustration
Ink painting on stretched water colour paper. Two of three.

Trying something a little different here: taking a very close up view and seeing if I can give the effects of perspective and focus/out-of-focus areas.
Other than this short series, I haven't painted in a very long time. I was just seeing what I was able to do again :3

Others in the series

Congratulations for this wonderful photo!

It's exactly what I'm looking for at the moment and I would love to use it for an article on my blog.
Of course, only if you are agree with it. This is my blog and if I hear anything more from you, I hope that's okay with you. :-)

I haven't heard a reply from you, so I am guessing you are not interested in using my photo that I painted this from.

So just to reiterate - I do not give you permission to use this picture.
If I find you have been using it I will be both annoyed and slightly amused, as it is a low resolution scan of my painting with my watermark on and therefore pretty much unusable for commercial purposes in this condition! Oh dear, haha  XD

Hi there, I am glad you like my picture.
However it is a painting, not a photo!

As it is one of my paintings I will say no. I hope that is ok.
But I painted this from a photo I made myself. Would you be interested in the photo instead?

How long does this take you and what kind of materials? :)

I think maybe about 6 or 7 hours? I can't quite remember. I was just doing it for fun so I wasn't keeping track.
I did this painting on-and-off, while watching my boyfriend play Halo 4 XD

I used inks for the whole painting: Windsor and Newton colours, black Quink ink, Dr. Ph. Martins white ink, and more Windsor and Newton white ink.

Yes it is rather, but I wasn't going 100% full speed ahead! It was more of a leisurely paint :3
mm, it was nice to do some painting where there wasn't a deadline and marks and such
