An oil painting just finished in the back-streets of Kyoto. I really like the constructions of the roofs – the tiles and layered architecture.
So here’s the plan: Over the next days I’ll post the images and stories from Kyoto. The first one (of 9 finished images, of which I posted just one yet.)
I’ll start with the result.
“Machiya Kawara” – oil on 45 x 27 cm wood board (preliminary photo).
It’s also for sale right now:
A first sketch (done with brush pen).
The painting spot I chose.
A draft on the wooden board I used as canvas…. notice something in the background?
I was watched closely!
There were 6 cats that day on the roof – at least some just had to end up on the painting.
The perfect Japanese roof camoflage.
