Hot Spring Repose by Idess

Hot Spring Repose


Full Watercolor Painting commission for Televassi of his warrior character shedding his armor and taking a relaxing dip in a hot spring as the day turns to dusk in the mountains

This commission started out as a simple watercolor pinup, but ended up taking a life of it's own and became a full blown painting! Televassi was wonderful in letting me try some new things and it worked out wonderfully :) The piece looks stunning in real life!

9x12" Watercolor on Hot Press paper

    Excellent use of colours, and the soft warm feel of the water looks extremely inviting. The palette in this gives it a nice cool secluded feel and the look on the wolf's face makes it feel like they are inviting you in to join them for a quick dip and a nice conversation. It's sensual but not overly sexual. Wonderfully done.

      Thank you so much! This was the first time I've used a palette from Colourlovers and it's one of those "why didn't I do this earlier?!" sort of deals! I'm glad it comes off as sensual but not sexual, that's a great way of putting it! The client did not want the character being sexual and he's rarely seen in this sort of situation so I wanted to give off that vibe :3 Thank you for the great comment!
