A sketch of the Mitsui shop in Suruga in Edo

The eleventh piece in this series already, it was done faster than I anticipated as the sketch took ages and then the inking took even longer.

Best part about the work is the very few colors it uses. Indanthrone blue, Ultramarine, Serpentine, Quinacrodone Gold and Moonglow.

I did not try to get all the texts right, not even attempting it as that would end in shame and misery for anyone who would stumble upon this.
