He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.
- Sonia Delaunay

Eye Candy for Today: Kano Sansetsu Plum

Posted by Charley Parker at 6:10 pm

The Old Plum, Kano Sansetsu
The Old Plum, attributed to Kano Sansetsu, ink, color and gold on gilded paper, 1645 (Edo period).

This wonderfully gnarled old tree, portrayed across four sliding door panels, is almost a landscape — or a world — in itself.

    Yes!!! Cannot wait to learn and perform this ancient old technique, that has been on my mind to try out, for a quite a while, as if you´ve read my mind, Charley.
