Tokyo, Japan [RESULTS]

Postby Maki » Sat Jul 31, 2010 3:49 pm

Hello, folks!
We went to "Rikugien" in Komagome, Tokyo this time.
It's a old Japanese garden that has beautiful scenery of nature.
There were many plants, insects, fishes, turtles, plenty of lives.
Also it means we sketched with fighting against humid and mosquitoes. :lol:

These are my sketches.

You choose a beautiful place to draw with so may interesting things - the red umbrell and seat are very visial. Your watercolours are lovely - 4 very different styles- the view of the roof is a great one

The garden lantern in Rikugien is my favorite. Incredible photo's! I would love to be able to sketch in a garden as beautiful as the one you've showed us here. :clap:

Thanks for sharing.

Maki-san, your watercolours are very nice! The strong florid colours in your second painting complement each other nicely. I like the little details, and these are different from your other drawing styles I've seen. :thumbup: I hope you and the other sketchers weren't bitten by too many mosquitoes!!

Great sketches Maki!
I've never been to Rikugien. I should really pay it a visit the next time I'm in Tokyo. :)

Hi. お久しぶりです! Thanks so much. I'm glad you noticed I'm trying new style of watercolor. This time, Tokyo had only 2 sketchers. Usual members went to Kanagawa. For the big JAXA feve. :lol:

gaelwriter
Thankyou so much for your kind comment.

Olve
Thanks so much. Rikugien is the one of the popular sightseeng spot for visiters to Japan. I suggest you should go there in spring or autumn. That would be nice flowers or red leaves.

Sophie Valenti
Thankyou so much for your kind words.
