Kyoto Lane





Acrylic on Canvas Paper - 4x6 - Sold
Thought I'd try another quick sketch before embarking on a more lengthy piece. I liked this photo from my trip, but the winding lane is a bit cliche. And there really were two fiery maples at the end of the lane. Maybe I'll dig up a better shot that doesn't look so "bookend-ish". The road color is kinda tricky too. It really does reflect the sky, but it should have a touch of warmth in it. Something to keep in mind.

Before I even saw the title, I was wondering if it was a scene from Japan so you must have done most things right!
