Tenshin kaki Temple

Tenshin kaki Temple

You've conveyed that burst of light at the end Nick. I can feel it very well - very hard to do in watercolour I would think. I have a similar idea in hand, not in such a special place I might add. When my daughter had her rather open plan house built last year, the light streamed in through the wide windows into the unfitted kitchen. There was a protective blue colour on the glass, the reflection on the floor looked like an abstract, there were rectangular shapes of beautiful colour on the polished cement floor - sorry if this is a tad long winded, Your painting just has the same effect on me. It's lovely.

Many thanks Marjorie, I like the abstract in the ordinary as well. I simply couldn't, resist this image when I saw it. I painted this image in three layers making sure each layer was dry before laying the next.

Hang on Studio Wall

A watercolour where I tried to capture the contrast between the bright sunshine and the dark interior of the temple.I used purple and blue to contrast the strong yellow of the Ginkgo Tree.
