Artist Danny Roberts Portrait of a girl in a kimono inspired by Risa Nakamura


Kimono Girl

first of all, let me introduce my newest painting in my ‘Portraits of Japan‘ series. Inspired by a Daoko song 🎶 called fireworks 💥 Risa Nakamura (里砂 中村) inspired the look of the model. Selecting the right Kimono fabrics was quite a task. Materials: arches 300lbs cold press paper, watercolors, color pencils, finished the portrait off with gold leaf. I experimented with digital painting on top, working in more lighting effects. I love how it turned out.
