Beauty in the Ordinary

First Study from Japan

Shiroyama Koen Study


The first study was done a in a park within walking distance of the apartment where I am staying. The park is called ‘Shiroyama Koen’ and has a wide variety of plants and trees and several large koi ponds. Definitely a spot worth visiting again for another painting.

The sky here is generally overcast, as it was on this day. The overcast light is perfect for painting and offers the most balanced lighting for all types of work.

It was great to finally get out and paint! More to come.
