With the exquisite illustration above serving as a grand example, the images in this collection come sporting three main factors responsible for viewer interest – action, atmosphere, and effect. The girl above is portrayed in an unorthodox pose reminiscent to one falling – featuring an atmosphere delicately crafted with soft neutral and relaxing tones suitable for the sophisticated composition.
Such a subtle display of color works to create an incredibly vivid emphasis on specific areas – her hair for example is the lush highlight of the image, offering a fresh pulse of vitality to the artwork though its selective natural blue shade. This forms an overall smooth and serene scene specifically made alluring by her angle and ongoing movement, or action, within the image.
Her seifuku blouse is elegantly lofting itself open as she appears to be encompassed by airflow – an effect truly noticeable in her hair and the fluttering flower petals.
A prominent part of this lovely piece is the artificially devised yet distinct medium – the image appears as if carefully painted through watercolor as one would expect for such smooth coloring, something particularly striking around the areas of darker value such as the lower length of hair and bottom portion of the image.
One thing to take into account as viewing the remaining works, contrast combined with simplicity can clearly define an impressive artwork.
