Tropical Waterfall by Jasmine Jennifer McAlpine is an illustration that uses honshindo style to express peacefulness and natural beauty. It is a computer painting of objects that were taken from imagination. The canvas measures 20 by 15 inches, and Corel Draw Home & Student Suite X7 by Corel Corporation was used to create the illustration.
Honshindo style develops posture and temporality for the woman in Tropical Waterfall. It develops depth of field and temporality for the branch. Gender identity, emotions, and actions develop from simplicity of the poses of the woman and the branch. They develop from the brief instance of temporality that creates the illustration. The woman appears to be caught privately in a sexy pose, and the branch appears to be caught naturally bent towards the ground by gravity, rain, and wind.
The woman's hips show the perspective that stands away from the canvas, and her left shoulder shows the perspective of action that travels forwards from her spine and to her right. The narrowing angles of the smaller branches to the main branch going up from the ground show the perspective away from the canvas, and the increasing counter-clockwise angles of the smaller branches on the right of the main branch show the perspective of action down onto the plant. The woman stands momentarily during a slow clockwise turn of her shoulders, and the plant lives in the rainforest by mercies of nature.
Tropical Waterfall is minimalism of details and objects. It is honshindo style of painting in bright, warm colors that is meant to describe individuality, solitude, and independence. The woman smiles at the foot of the waterfall in the rainforest reflecting on her ambitions, worth, and sexuality.
