Parks in Tokyo are obviously wonderful places to get away from the concrete, and sometimes the crowds. But for many people they also offer the opportunity to practice something that can’t be done at home — at least not comfortably. Like double bass players in need of some space, not to mention no neighbours. And painters with an equal desire for the former, along with a craving for some lovely, studio-like sunlight.
Love the light in this shot. The guys painting looks pretty cool too.
Yeah, it was really nice. A bit cooler, and lovely long shadows that mark the end of the day.
I love this picture!!
The horses are so beautiful!!
Yeah, it’s not like any painting I’ve ever seen people do in parks. Very striking.
That is such an awesome painting! I wonder if he’s professional. I could definitely see that in a museum in Austin.
Probably not, Lizzy. I’m often amazed by the quality of paintings I see by amateurs in Tokyo’s parks and public places. There are a lot of very talented artists out there.
I like his painting, very colorful.
Yeah, not bad, is it?
