Japan Sketchbook from digital:works on Vimeo.

Toji-inn Japanese Concertina sketchbook
This 4 metre ink and water colour drawing of a zen garden in Kyoto was drawn from right to left, a little each day. The full drawing is a 360 degree panorama of the garden as you walk around it. Drawn during the Autumn the colours changed from greens and browns to hot oranges reds and yellows.


Ginkakuji in the rain from digital:works on Vimeo.

Ginkakuji in the rain, ink, acrylic and watercolour on Japanese calligraphy sketchbook.
Ginkakuji is a garden in Kyoto which is famous for its silver raked sands, and very popular with Japanese tourists. On the day of my visit, it was pouring with rain. Sheltering under my own red umbrella, I followed the tourists, all concealed under coloured umbrellas, as they promenaded and meandered up and down the hilly paths, and through glades of bamboo.
