Jurujuba by Rssfim Jurujuba by Rssfim
Jurujuba is a small beach located in the city of Niterói, inside the Guanabara Bay, very very close to Rio de Janeiro.
There are so many fishboats that turn that beach into a colourful and peaceful place.

Watercolour on paper.

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-05-28
Jurujuba by *Rssfim ( Featured by SRudy )
:iconposhsingularity:
This is really cute. The boats which are the central subject of the piece have a lot of character, and for some reason kind of remind me of older folk sitting on a park bench.

Good brush technique and colour choices.

The composition is a little too symmetrical and centered for me; while the rock helps, it would have been great to see a little more horizontal space to the side (probably to the left), which would give this a more interesting balance (offsetting it with something else, like a bit of the dock that they seem to be tied to).

Otherwise, this is very well executed; only a couple small anomalies in the perspective- the rightmost foreground blue boat's bow looks a little lopsided, and behind it to the top right, the left boat out of that couple also looks a little lopsided. The rest are almost all very believable; although it could be argued that it is the slight imperfections that give this so much charm :)

Looking through the daily deviations today, this one really stood out to me for several reasons:
This is a very nice, traditional composition. Although this type of composition has been done many times before, you have effectively depicted the calm waters and the still boats.
I really enjoy your painting technique, each brush stroke has a purposeful meaning and just enough is said to suggest the masts of the boats, or the hill in the background. My favourite is your choice in colours, the brighter hues in the boats help them pop out against the murky, blue-gray background. Well done!
Sometimes simplicity is best, and I think you've done your job as a painter to realize that for us viewers. Thank you.

Holy cow, that's amazing. If I may ask, how did you get that ripply, grainy effect in the water?
Reply

Rssfim Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks a lot!

This effect was achieved using a dry brush on the paper's surface (dry on dry technique). As the paper is a rough Arches 140 lb, the roughness helps a lot to get this effect.
