Sarah Buchholz (@papilionism) is my pick for today’s talent!
If you don’t know what A Year on Talents is here you can find the description of the project: A Year on Talents Project

Sarah is a self taught artist from Germany, she likes to travel and not only in the real world by with her mind and especially her art! In her artworks there’s a lot of nature which I love, and so many other places she “visits” with a painting. One particular thing you should know about her is that she is working on Inori, a character of her own she put a lot of effort into.

Not only the passion and the study over Inori’s figure but she is also imagining and painting a story and a travel for her, giving life and basically building a complete and cohesive world where the character could be the protagonist of a new adventure. I like her attitude and the ability to stay on track for so long (if I’m not mistaken Inori “was born” in 2019!), it’s a trait to celebrate.

The first art is simply amazing! It’s a painting from the Princess Mononoke, you see the loooovely Yakul there and I agree with what Sarah wrote in the caption about it, it’s probably one of the best designed animal companions ever. I love that film so much that this wonderful representation feels touching to me. On IG she posted a few detail pics with the steps too and they’re very very interesting because you can clearly catch the layering process behind the piece, I enjoyed it a lot.

The second artwork is so beautiful!! She made two versions of it, you’re seeing the brighter one but there’s a second one where it’s darker, there’s snow in the ground aaand .. a special silhouette in the foreground. I’m not saying more you can find it on her profile! About this one I surely love the clouds and all the tones she was able to cleanly mix in the sky, it’s smooth and incredible.
