Hi Bella, I have the same idea for IF's pale. First thing that came to my mind was a geisha. But I had it in B&W. Very nice composition, it's like Japanese art.
Oh my Bella! This is beautiful! I love the delicacy of it.
Dreamy and beatiful, Bella!
This is a beautiful shade of pastel. I love your Japonisme theme, except in your case, it is the real thing. Outstanding impression of delicacy with the white flowers, the fading background and her coiffure. This is a sweet image.
Gorgeous doodles Bella. :-)
OMG this is gorgeous!!!She is so delicate and ethereal, and the oriental style is perfect :o)
That's so serene!! Awww now you make me crave spring even more. Can't wait to have hanami at shinjuku gyoen! Stay warm and toasty!
OOOh Bella you make me long for springtime! Oh man this is wonderful. I can just smell the cherry blossoms. It's beautiful! You've captured such a beautiful moment. I was stuck there for a moment and almost forgot to leave a comment. I was just scaring at the painting. I'm so moved by this. Great work.
Beautiful work... - she is very pale! :)
Yeah, she is so beautiful.I love the pale blurring effect at the background. The geisha is just so sweet to resisit. May I date her?When I see pale for this week challenge, I also have the same idea as yours and Bjornik of making a geisha drawing.He...He...but I will try others approach later.

Hi Bella,Glad you liked the green bird gocco. Pale green is a great colour ne!? She chose a pretty kimono.Cheers,Andrea
Perfect interpretation of pale - I love your style!
that is really pretty. I love the background too
This is LOVELY. You achieved a great pale effect without losing contrast.
Exquisite! A perfect illo for the topic. Stunningly pale.
Ohhh this is beautiful Bella!! I love the soft colors and her beautiful pose. :o)
how did you do that? is that a sketch? its amazing
Thank you, everyone. Thank you so very much.Milly, this is a pencil sketch, which I scanned into Illustrator. I created a background layer of cherry blossoms, which I then blurred. On another layer, I colored in the Geisha and created smaller, crisp blossoms. And then on the top layer, I traced the outline with ink brushstrokes on Illustrator. No special tricks. I don't know any. Thanks for asking!
Soft, dreamy and beautiful! It's comfort for the eyes ^-^!
Very pretty, Bella! Thank you for visiting!- JOhn
I am thinking of spring already! she is peaceful looking and the background looks so tranquil.great job with the hair. my japanese friend will really like this also.
This is soooo pretty! I adore the softness and colors...
Gorgeous! You really cannot get paler than her cute little porcelain and, as Vittoria says, ethereal face. Also love the background.
Now this is just absolutely lovely, lovely, lovely! Not only beautifully rendered, but the feeling when looking at it, so soft, peaceful, ahhhhhhh...nice!
