Kimono Lady “Mikaeri Bijin”

Maiko Lady Maiko Lady2

Media used: watercolour pencils, watercolour, origami collage, effects

Left is the original.

Right is the one I played fish effect on the kimono design for a bit of fun.

Japanese call these kimono ladies “Mikaeri Bijin” which is the direct translation for “a beauty looking back”. I’ve initially posted this drawing by the title “Maiko Lady” but realised Maiko has white make-up and usually arrange their hair in an updo style. My bad for all the confusion! I will just call her a kimono lady instead. 🙂
