The dream-like paintings of KanaOhtsuki drip with a beautiful array of controlled colors and delicate textures. She is somehow capable of creating a paradox of tranquility and chaos that moves the painting back and forth across a fence that most pictures stay on one side of.
Unlike a lot of the artists that I have shared, KanaOhtsuki seems to mostly use traditional mediums (acrylics, colored pencil, marker). Digital art has become the standard platform for anime artists, and suits many of the anime ideals very well. However there are aspects of traditional mediums that go hand in hand with some of the more classic styles. KanaOhtsuki is one of the perfect examples of those styles, in my mind, and I couldn’t think of a better approach to her aesthetic.
