Watercolour Japanese buildings

Watercolour Japanese buildings - student project

Decided to take influence from my trip to Japan last September, and sketch some Japanese style buildings. Starting with a quick small watercolour of a shrine gate I found, and then a really interesting building in Yokohama.

Here's the lineart for the building in Yokohama

And here's my two watercolour finished pieces (I forgot to take a photo of the gate lineart)
