Original photograph of a lovely Maiko 舞妓, an apprentice Geisha in Kyoto Japan. Photo © Stevyn Llewellyn 2010.
I took this photo while travelling in Japan in Spring of 2010. I was fortunate enough to get a glimpse of a rare sight, a Maiko ( apprentice Geisha ) in her traditional kimono walking down Hanami Koji Dori street in the famous Geisha district in Kyoto. In the background are large sake casks, which frame her ornate wareshinobou hairstyle, elaborate kanzashi, brightly colored kimono, and beautiful green obi. She is also carrying a small purse. She had just finished a performance at the historic Pontocho Kaburenjo Theatre, where they have seasonal Geisha plays. This would make a unique gift for anyone interested in Japanese culture, Maiko, Geisha, or kimonos.

New Artwork – Watercolor Blue Series

blueI’ve been busy working a a capsule series of figurative pieces based off of one of my abstract watercolor paintings, which I left outside in the rain to achieve  the spontaneous texture. I then scanned it the painting, and used one of my vector drawings to create the final work digitally. This weds both traditional and digital media for a clean image, with references to the female form and my textile design background.

It is now for sale here as an archival gilcee print, and apparel.

sketch To Capture the fleeting moments of beauty in time can only be achieved by impressions, lines, approximations. One wonders about the nature of beauty—It’s timeless appeal, it’s power…It’s subjectivity. The changeless female form is an archetype in it’s own right—a link to history and mystery.

This watercolor is an attempt to try to emulate simplicity while honoring the female form. Inspired initially by a photograph I took, I saw the potential for a line drawing. Trying to achieve a consistent style is vital.
