Living in Japan for over 2 decades made me want to give it a try!
These were the color testing i did to see which colors fit the mood i wanted.
Eventually i chose Quinacridone coral, Ultramarine finest, Aussie Red Gold, make grays with the coral im using and add Cobalt Green, for the sky Shadow violet and finally the sandy area with yellow gold from gansai tambi.
This is a rough sketch of what I wanted to paint.
This is the final. Somehow the three primary’s looked good side by side, the shadow violet skies didn’t particularly work with the primary’s. Also the paper wasn’t forgiving that I day to work quickly.
