shrine on


older!Corvo and older!Daud meeting someplace out-of-the-way for a smoke for @yellowcandy

Almost everyday, on my way to the animation studio I pass through the famous Yasukuni shrine. One of the reasons why the shrine in well known are the sakura trees in the inner garden. In autumn, the leaves turn orange and golden-green. One morning I had some minutes to spare so I took few photos near the entrance gate. I tried to paint it in watercolors with just a little help from white paint for the details and pencil for the light, initial sketch. The ultimate goal was to show the lighting as it was on the warm autumn morning.

Technical stuff:

  • Medium: HOLBEIN Waterford natural 300g/m cotton paper
  • Sketch: 2H Mitsu-bishi Hi-Uni pencil
  • Colours: 38 color Schmincke set + 2 custom greens.

毎日通勤中に靖国神社を通ります。春の桜がものすごく綺麗ですが、秋の赤緑色の葉っぱも好きです。 先週撮った写真を参考にして水彩で描いてみました。暖かい朝の光を意識して描いています。
