Heavenly Waters by moyan Heavenly Waters by moyan
i am quite fond of this painting i did and had this up in my other haiku account :iconmoyanii: since oct 14, 2009. i think more people can see it here. :)

some background of this artwork:

君不见黄河之水天上来
do you not see that the waters in the yellow river comes from the heaven?

- Li Bai (701-762 C.E.), the poetic deity of Tang dynasty.

written in brush calligraphy is an excerpt from a long freeverse poem named 将进酒,roughly translated "a toast to you".

black ink and white paint only with a simple calligraphy brush on rice paper.

it was dedicated to a friend here on dA but he already left the community...

*~*~*

by #dALinkSystem, Cocytus flows to Acheron by ~pixini:



this deviant has some of the most intricate and detailed line art of architecture and structures.

and Underground River by ~Grindlebone



black and white only on a scratch board, the lighting and atmosphere is very real.

When you look at the white blob in the middle, it looks like a white horse trudging out of something. It's so cool when you have an image inside another and you didn't even realize it!

Simplicity that evokes timelessness and beauty. The poetic calligraphic addition is so very apropos and wonderfully done. When looked at without focusing on any part, the whole is very balanced and pleasing. Perfectly dreamy.

As a non-paying member, I cannot give official critique. However, I find this piece quite pleasing. The style is very reminiscent of similar art of several centuries ago. The monochome treatment feels, to these eyes at least, superior to any attempt at color. It just seems more tranquil. This would be a piece I could see in my bedroom as a thing to more-or-less "meditate" on before sleep.
