The final painting of the O-Torii Gate

This is the final watercolour I will be painting from my experiences in Japan earlier this year. I suspect I will be visiting again soon as my son lives there and I miss him so. I look forward to finding more inspirational scenes to paint on my next visit.

I’m back in Sweden now! It was so nice to visit my son and his wife in Iwakuni, south of Hiroshima. Japan is such an interesting place, it really is foreign to me and that is what is so cool and interesting with the place.

My trip to Asia

I am enjoying my trip to Asia. Right now I am visiting my son in Iwakumi. This sketch is of a father and son who queued up for ice cream at the Wooden Bridge, a tourist spot in Iwakuni, Japan. From my sketchbook.
