Dee Teller Sumie #18 - Artists paintbrush

 This was the final scroll done for Dee Teller's solo art exhibition. It is a painting of a peacock feather titled Artists Paintbrush. I really liked the design, but had some health issues while finishing it. Particularly, some areas on the mimiori did not go perfectly. However, I really liked the design we worked out for this wallscroll. I wanted to accent the purple and gold that makes this painting so beautiful. So I wanted to use this purple gold purple pattern in a Sandan Hyougu (3 Step) style kakejiku to accentuate these colors. I finished it with a Nashi Chi Jikusaki that has a gold/red glitter look to it, whcih I felt was good for the overall design. For the Kakehimo I used a deep purple with a gold pattern in it..
