New Painting: Sakura

Sakura

Inspired by the traditional Japanese sumi-e (black ink) paintings, of which there is an abundance!
I wanted my composition to embody the elements I was drawn to: Sakura – cherry blossom, celebrating Hanami, Torii Gate symbolically marking the transition from the mundane to the sacred, land of the rising sun and distant volcanic mountains contrasting with the bold Sakura!
This is my version, using acrylics in just 3 colours for great simplistic effect.
I really enjoyed creating this one, I hope you will too!
