Triptych of Rising Sun and Plants of the Four Seasons
By Sakai Hôitsu with calligraphy by Kazan'in Yoshinori.
Edited in Picasa, to brighten the exposure.
These three pieces... I was just stunned by them. Truly enraptured. I felt like I could stay there and stare at their beauty forever. The colors are so bright and clear, the shapes so crisp and perfect. The shading is done perfectly. Nothing bleeds outside of the sharp non-outlined edges of each form.
