Jade Cup by puimun Jade Cup by puimun
size: 8x14 inches
medium: watercolor
prints available here: [link]

Painted as a commissioned piece for someone who enjoyed my backgrounds.


And many a night it seems
That all the valley fills
With those fantastic dreams.
They overflow the hills,
So passionate is a shade,
Like wine that fills to the top
A grey-green cup of jade,
Or maybe an agate cup.
-- William Butler Yeats, "The Dreaming of Bones"

Beautiful, it reminds me a bit of the style of one Slovak artist and ilustrator - Albin Brunovsky

This has to be my favorite of all your works. If you did something like this in a greater size, it would look magnificent on the length of a wall. Your work is truly divine.

Very Impressionistic. Did you use salt or anything in the foreground trees? I love the texture you got into this piece. Lovely, thank you for sharing.
