"Corner sakura" original watercolour painting
Unfortunately, while the cherries were in bloom in Tokyo either I was busy, or it was raining so I could not paint outside. I took some photos of the sakura near my house to paint later and this is the result.
I wanted to try something a little bit different than usual: I first did a pencil sketch, then painted the picture using my Schmincke watercolours. When I was done with the colours the pencil lines where almost invisible so to add details and depth I used some white opaque paint and Conté pencil charcoal
* Medium: CANSON Heritage 300g/m cold pressed cotton paper
* Sketch: Mitsu-bishi Hi-Uni pencil 2B
* Colours: My Schmincke 48 colors watercolours set
* Black lines: Conté à paris PIERRE NOIRE B and 3B
Size (paper): 26.5 x 19.5cm (the painting itself, about 23.5 x 16.5cm)
This is an original watercolour painting NOT A PRINT. It is shipped from Japan by me personally. All original paintings will be signed and dated.
It's important to me that this painting gets to its final destination in perfect condition. It will be shipped in a protective cellophane sleeve with a cardboard packaging, in an envelope (EMS cardboard envelope in case of EMS service)
If there are any questions, please let me know!
