Strawberry Shortcakes

strawberry shortcakes

I fell in love with this watercolor painting that was featured in it. I wanted to badly to draw one for myself, so I did. Of course, I didn’t do it to match the one in the movie, I changed a few details in it so it can have my own view inside.

The movie is about four women trying to cope with modern life and the ups and downs. It was based off a manga. You can read the review by clicking the link.
The drawing is in watercolors, on A4. As usual…

Oke, acest desen am vrut sa-l termin aproape toata vara. Dupa ce am privit filmul japonez “Strawberry Shortcakes” m-am indragostit the desenul din acuarela ce apare in el.

Am dorit mult de tot sa desenez unul asemanator pentru mine, asa ca am facut-o. Desigur, n-am vrut sa se asemene prea mult cu cel din film, asa ca am adaugat niste detalii care sa ma defineasca.

Filmul este despre patru femei care trec prin incercari tipice pentru viata moderna, cu suisuri si coborasuri. Povestea este bazata dintr-o manga. Puteti citi recenzia in engleza dand click pe link.
Desenul e in acuarela, pe hartie A4. Ca de obicei…

Culinary blog banner

This is a banner I made for a culinary blog. I selected neutral colors like light blue and mint green, along with black for a more professional look. I added details related to cooking and baking, because it seemed appropriate. I made it using Photoscape for the title and details and I added color with Photoshop.

Am facut acest banner pentru un blog culinar. Am selectat culori neutre precum albastru deschis sau verde menta, impreuna cu negru pentru un aspect mai profesional. Am adaugat detaliile legate de gatit si copt pentru ca mi s-au parut ideale. L-am realizat folosind Photoscape pentru titul si detalii, culorile au fost adaugate in Photoshop.

Destiny

Destinul nu este ceva aflat in afara noastra. Il construim zi de zi, pas cu pas. Mai veseli, mai tristi…

Compozitie pe fundal A4, cu liner negru si carioci. Fundalul a fost finalizat in Photoshop.

Destiny isn’t something outside of our person. We build it day by day, step by step. Cheerful or sad.

Composition on A4 paper, with black liner and colors. Background was made using Photoshop.

Incognito

Compozitie pe coala A4, la care am folosit mixed media dar si putin Photoshop pentru fundal. La inceput ii lasasem chipul sa se vada, apoi m-am razgandit pentru ca acoperit, o face mai misterioasa. De asemenea m-am inspirat din manga, arta japoneza fiind o sursa buna de unde se pot invata multe.

Mixed media and also some Photoshop for the background. At first she had a face, but then I decided she looks more mysterious without it. Also manga inspired, Japanese art always has something you can learn from. Composition on A4 paper.

Lady with the dogs

Doamna cu caini este un personaj din cartea scriitoarei Jeanette Winterson, Sexul ciresilor. Femeia care poarta aceasta porecla este minunata, directa si sincera. Fura inima cititorilor inca de la primele pagini.
In desenul meu am ilustrat momentul in care se duce la circul din oras, si este pusa sa stea in acelasi leagan cu un elefant. Atunci cand se aseaza in leagan, elefantul zboara in sus, spre cer. Mi-a placut mult amuzamentul pur in aceasta situatie imposibila, dar totusi foarte adevarata intre paginile cartii.

It’s a character illustration after reading Jeanette Winterson’s book, Sexing the cherry. The woman is nicknamed “The lady with dogs” and has a wonderful, direct and quite sincere personality. She capture’s the readers heart right from the first pages.
In my drawing she is illustrated when a circus comes to town and she goes to sit in the same teeter with an elephant. The moment she sits down, the animal goes flying in to the sky. I loved the real amusement in this impossible situation, but still so very true inside the pages of Jeanette’s book.
Made with watercolor and fiber crayon colors on A4 paper.

The white birds

Iar pasarile albe care zburau pe mare intre umbrele noastre si zei imi amintesc ca asta sunt si nu altul, acestia suntem si nu altii. – Octavian Paler, Cei care-am fost la Troia
Acuarela pe coala A4.

And the white birds that flew on the sea between our shadows and gods remind me that this is who I am and not another, this is who we are and not others. – Octavian Paler, The ones that went at Troja

Sea girl

Închizi lumea în disperarea ei nebună

Şi-o azvârli ca piatra-n prima lacrimă de apă

Te fereşti râzând de stropi,

Pornind în grabă al tău joc

Navighezi ţinându-mă de mână,

Pe sub curcubeul iubirii

Spre ţărmul uitării.

You close the world into its crazy desperation

And throw it into the first tear of water

You watch out for the drops, laughing,

Hurrying to play your game

You sail holding my hand,

Under love’s rainbow

Towards the shore of forgetfulness.
