We often go with Kana to used books stores to find interesting materials. Last time I bought an old album about Japanese bridges and found in it one that I know pretty well - The Full Moon Bridge in the Koishikawa Korakuen Japanese garden. I go there to paint often because it’s one of the few gardens that don’t mind if you use a tripod (or two).
I did this picture during a pretty long session (about 5 hours). I first made a really basic sketch in 2H pencil and then painted with my Schmincke set. The foliage proved to be really difficult to paint in this style with just watercolours so I used some white poster colour paint (NIKKER brand) and mixing it with the watercolours added some details.
The light kept changing drastically because of fast moving clouds and I got rained upon halfway through the painting. I managed to finish it somehow just before a huge storm approached.
