Honen-in Temple (Kyoto)
I begun painting it in August, but had to interupt works for month and half after two layers and part of third were done. When I managed to go back to work, I half forgot my original concept and the sistem and ways how I started to paint third layer what caused all trees abowe went totaly differently than I intended.I managed to recover my intended style just when I was finishing last branch. Unfortunately I made the very kind of "mistake" which is unrebarable doesn't matter what you are doing. I got angry and tucked painting under my armchair.
Before couple of days I mentioned this very painting to one of my watchers who urged me to finish it. Since I forgot original concept I considered painting quite acceptable and finaly done it.
....So, here is it. You can notice that right part of vefetation is more realistic and have more volume than the rest. That's the part wher I interupted painting for more than month.Whole rest of tird and forth layer went out differently.
I'm satisfied with painting but displeased with myself-pictures alwayes ends up as I want! Just this one....
