Another painting from Kyoto. It’s the last days of the exhibition, so only until Saturday to see it in real! I offer anyone who wants a personal tour, since I live close enough to drop by… and I’m always curious about reactions and opinions
Here are some steps of the process. After scouting the house, I first made some sketches. As with all the paintings there, I mixed several perspectives into one. So it needed some figuring out.
I came back the next morning to continue and found this stool waiting for me in front of the house, with a little message in German. Meeting the really nice family of this house – and getting some support (morally and coffeiny), made it all very enjoyable and motivating.
With this I couldn’t disappoint. Here is the sketch on canvas at the second day.
It took me two more days. At home I added some details that I could paint from memory. I also choose to open the door, to make it look as welcoming as I experienced it.
