A lady meets a curious goose. This time I wanted to paint something warm to contrast the Finnish winter. The painting process involved ArtRage and Corel Painter with some adjustments done in Photoshop.

This reminds me of some of the old paintings my mother used to have hanging around. You captured the woman's bemused expressions perfectly I think. I can just imagine her saying, "You can't follow me home you silly goose!" or something along those lines.

This looks very traditional, the brushstrokes are straight from an oil painting.

Beautiful subsurf scattering on the parasol :)

Lovely! The details, the colour...I love everything in this painting. :)

i just adore the serene and calming atmosphere in your work. this one actually looks like its right out of a jane austin novel. also, its amazing how you make digital art seem like an oil on canvas painting. i'd love to have that in my house :3

Really pretty- I live her dress and the goose, but my favorite part of this picture is the the parasol- the light and shading on it is amazing. Really good job with the background, too.
CrumbledWings Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2014
The detail is this gave me goosebumps (yes pun intended) , just this drawing alone, played out a story i feel that (if i knew it) i couldn't help but love XD
PhoenixCrush Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Amazing detail! I can see how the umbrella is shading light on the lady, it looks really cool! I always love the sun that comes in the side of your paintings, they look so pretty! :D

Great work on the light!
DestinyRose09 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love the emotion on her face. The way you painted this is breathtaking! The reflection from the water is also spot on. This is very realistic... almost as if a photograph was taken. I love how you drew the duck too! very cute lol

 Wow. No words for this. Amazing.
Pipersmclean Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2014  Student Photographer
No words can describe the  emaculate details you have made. The hair is perfect!! The goose looks so feal!! Even the grass is so real! This is definitely one of those paints you would get caught touching just to see if it was a painting or a window!

This is so very lovely. I adore the golden-yellow, bright green, and violet color pallet so I’m attracted to this piece. I didn't notice at first, but I like that you used blue shadows in the backdrop as they made the yellows “pop” more. I’m also really fascinated how in this scene of color, your two subjects are light hues nearing white. It’s surprisingly effective.

This is so charming! It very much has the feel of a classical painting, and I love the concept. Excellent work!

Reminds me a little bit of Monet. ;)
Marbaty Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I love this one ! It is really great I think :D  The only shade is that the umbrella isn't perfectly round... My OCD is tingling :o (Eek) !
But seriously, this is pro art I think... I'm really curious about the sign at the bottom right ? Is it your signature? What does it mean? It fits quite well though ^^
arisuonpaa Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2014
Thank you and yes, it's my signature. Something I learned from our Japanese customers. Hope I'm not wrong but it should mean something like "to exist" and when it's pronounced in Japanese it sounds quite the same as my first name in Finnish.
Marbaty Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Now that's what I call something sophisticated XD Thanks for the explanation :) My signature is more or less a scribble I try to make as little as possible... I should try finding a new one '^' !

Great use of light, very realistic. Great job, keep it up.
Fang-of-Fenrir Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014
Amazing work! The detail is incredible :)
betit-ngoan Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014
This peice is really interesting, I really like the colors you choose for the hair and the clothes, I think the vision is really creative and can pull a lot of artistis in with it's looks. The Originality is really cool and I really like looking at it. The Technique you can tell is really detailed and must have taken you a long time. The Impact is pretty cool and everything, but maybe it could have used some lighter colors to maybe brighten it up a little bit, but it still has a huge impact on us the people on DA

this piece feels so much so like the paintings i see in italy . Its gorgeous and also the duck works in this painting for some weird reasons . I like how the combination of human and animals is in this piece and boy , does this look like an eye candy 
MauraGreen Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014  Hobbyist
Such enchanting artwork! Love the light, and love how joyful she looks.
mlpsunflower Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is amazing! I love the way the light hits her dress. Nice work!
Griatch-art Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really like the lighting here, and the nice calm (and somewhat unexpected) scene. Out of curiosity, where there any photo-reference used for the light? The effects on the parasol comes out excellently. Worth a fave!
arisuonpaa Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014
The reference photo of the lady (linked in the description) had a distinct sunlight which I just pushed a bit further.

I am generally not much into digital stuff but you're one who makes me interested! this piece is really warm and amazing:) very well done^^

MachiiChan Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
This is so beautiful! It looks like it took a long time to finish. The grass is great, and the water reflection is awesome. The woman looks so real, and the duck is adorable x3

Wow this is sooo beautiful! I love the color scheme you have and the style is so natural and flowing and soft, and the person is really detailed too. Really awesome! ^^
