Simplicity... one of my simpler designs with what I call a Japanese style.  Now and then I enjoy creating a painting that speaks with less.  What is different about this one is that it has usually been with  watercolors when I tend to go to a lighter side, but this was done with water downed acrylics.  I began with the gesturally line drawings in graphite, painted and then pulled the lines back through with black acrylic paint and added the jewels. It is done on a heavy watercolor paper and would need to be framed. Enjoy!
