I only learnt how to paint late last year through Kate Liu's Chasing Mood in Environment Paintings at Warrior Art Camp. Painting has taught me how to simplify the complexities in a scene, group values and compose a shot. It has made me feel a bit more courageous with colors to chase a mood and capture the light. I believe what I have learnt in painting can translate well in motion design. Here's a scene from a street in Tokyo from an online reference. I hope to give it a Miyazaki-esque feeling, bright and youthful while incorporating colors which are not as literal to achieve color harmony.
The Last Stop
Cake - Still life
Chung On Street - Plein Air
Hong Kong Palace Museum - Plein Air
Harcourt Road - Plein Air
This was the view I passed by every day back when I had a day job. Years later on an overcast day, a few strips of light peeked through the skyscrapers and made a nice cool and warm contrast on the road. Intrigued, I stood on the footbridge and painted the scene in three hours.
