My Fenghuang Painting

Hi, friends. How are you doing? We have been having hot days in Japan. I almost start to melt because of this hot weather!
I hope everybody is fine and enjoy the summer season.

I would like to show my fenghuang bird today. It was came from China, and it is not a real bird.

However, Japanese artists love painting and creating the statue of the birds. You can look at the most famous statue at the top of the Kinkau temple roof in Kyoto. It is one of the most beautiful temples in Japan.

I painted it with a Imari painting style. Red colors and blue colors combinations are quite common in Imari painting. I added some gold on my plate. You can look at the mark, 卍 on my plate. It is the mark as auspicious omens motif in Buddhism.

  1. Very nice! I doubt I’d ever have the patience for all the little details 🙂

    • Hi, William-san! Thanks for the comment!!! Haha, I also dont have so much patience for painting, though.

      It takes longer time for me to paint with the Imari painting style.

    I love your painting specially because of the details. I have n ever done a painting the Imari style but I do like it a lot. Thanks for sharing🙂

    • Thanks for the comment, Myrna.
      I am very glad to hear that you are interested in our painting style. It is really cool! I hope you enjoy painting the Imari style. It is very unique from others. I am planning to start to learn Kutani painting style next month. So, I am looking forward to showing my Kutani painting here near future! Kutani is one of Japanese painting styles. I cant wait!
