Japanese cranes mate for life and they can often be seen dancing for sheer joy.

  1. Especially like how you made it a diptych! So very free and joyous

  2. I agree! Also curious how you got the metallic effects in some parts of the background. Is this an illusion of color or actually metallic??

    • It is actually metallic silver watercolor paint by Daniel Smith. This company has some unusual paints by the way. I dropped the silver into the wet purple and then dropped more purple on top of the silver. I was thinking of ground fog and also a stereotype heaven. I love using metallics.

  3. Dancing, lovely, they look so free.
