Hi there,

First in the morning, I drew a street near learning center where I have watercolor class to teach near my place in Kanagawa prefecture.

Then I headed to Asakusa to catch up other Tokyo Sketchers. I drew “Nakamise street”, a bustling place full of tourist and locals as well. People come and go, some stood a while and took photos of cherry blossoms which were full bloom behind me. So, at that moment I was able to capture at least their posture. A woman from Thailand came and asked me to draw her in my sketch. It was the most welcome thing. You can see her on the light side of this drawing.

Special kudos on the Cherry Blossoms on a Tree-Lined Street sketch. It makes the world a better place.
