i love how artist and illustrator, chrystal chan uses color. her subjects shine in their beautifully-lit skin. chan carefully lines her cools with bits of warmth, giving her paintings a sense of welcomed comfort and familiarity. i am especially fond of her ‘cute paint’ series. you can find additional paintings, shows, and updates on her blog.
these are some colors that i love and use at this moment. i try to choose colors that i feel best fit the mood of the painting. often i want it to feel familiar as if a dream with a sense of stillness.
