Senju, Musashi But

With this seventh piece, a milestone is met. I drew my first horse and to be honest, it took me almost two weeks to force myself to work on it, not just the horse but the entire piece is something. There are many little details that make this composition work.

Not only the big horse stands out but also the fence in the middle right, the fisher man and his companion, everything is touched by trees and many of the colors are multi layered.

For me the highlight of 武州千住 (Bushū Senju) came in the form of the two distant trees in the middle, rising up from the underbrush. Mount Fuji here plays no role at all, other than reminding us that this is indeed part 7 of 36 views of Mount Fuji.

Trees with Daniel Smith Serpentine Genuine and Jadeite Genuine, otherwise Mijello Mission Gold colors like Ultramarine, Prussian Blue, Yellow Ochre, Van Dyke Brown, Red Brown and Van Dyke Green.
