Kintsugi Study

studyThis is an original sketch I did using Gimp rendering software. I’ve been taking a Photoshop class this term and it’s actually helping me understand Gimp a whole lot better. This is a quick digital painting I did of a Kintsuge style pottery. Kintsuge is a Japanese form of conservation which involves adhering broken pottery back together with gold. There’s a philosophy behind it that instead of hiding the breakage, you make it beautiful. I tried to make a flower-like design in the gold part.
