Kiki and the Waterlilies

This splash was inspired by Monet’s Waterlily paintings, the water ripples were colored to reflect Krita’s ring color selector. Kiki now has a more fashionable hair style and costume too. The whole picture was done using only Krita’s default basic-5 size brush. It was done after I reverted back to using my left hand, just like Kiki! I was born as a left hand user, but I was forced to use my right hand since I was 6, for 30 years. During the process of re-leanring how to draw, my experienced adult mind was able to pick up a lot of nuances that I wasn’t awared before, which greatly helped me to improve as an artist.
