Explanation Its pretty simple: a tranquil scene at a lotus or water lily pond. Perhaps Im trying to cheer myself up from the recent trauma from NS by portraying a little paradise for me to hide myself? Also this piece to specially dedicated to someone.
Inspiration Inspired from a name of a person. Also from an online tutorial which teaches how to make the petals from Blending. In the tutorial is another flower, but later i tot of making lotus flower form the same technique. I always see the semi transparent effect when sunlight pass thru water lily's petal. Credits to Samuel Liu from my sec 4 VS Art Elective class for detailed critic and coming up with the name "Lilies of Ethereal", then renamed "Lilies of Ethereality" by Yue Ting.
Technical Details Software - Adobe Photoshop CS 3, Adobe Illustrator CS 3 Time taken - About two weeks Canvas Size - 4000x3000px
The petals of the flowers are drawn by splitting the petal outline into two symmetrical parts, then use the Blend tool in Illustrator to gradually change the shape and colour of the lines from one part to another. There can be like 100 lines in between two parts. U can also see similar pattern of lining design on an actual lotus flower. As its made of lines, there are empty space in between, making it look translucent from far.
