Paintings used in PotW

Wednesday, October 8, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

We’ve been seeing lots of beautiful, lovely paintings from Painter on the Wind, and being completely unacquainted with Shin Yoon Bok’s original paintings, I though I’d do a wiki trawl and see what I came up with.

Lo and behold! There’s a lot of stuff that they incorporated into the show. Needless to say, this contains spoilers.

First, the Portrait of a Beauty, shown in the opening sequence, as a self-portrait.

Then Waiting, which got darling Yoon Bok into a heck load of trouble. Eventually the king realized who it was and intervened, saving Yoon Bok, her brother, and master Danwon from a bloody, handless fate.

In episode 4, Yoon Bok almost finishes Dano Day (but with more detail than here). The preview indicates foul play for the lovely, detailed piece of work she did, resulting in a less complicated version shown here.

Then there are the various lover painting Yoon Bok sells for profit (and summarily gets ripped off, greedy merchants) and fun. 😀 It’s a mark of sensibilities back then that these were considered pr0n.

    I especially like Lovers Under the Moon. The drawing really conveys the romantic feeling between the two.
