Wooden Doll こけし

The 21st day of Shodo-son. Another package is ready shipping to Japan. 勝手に書道マラソン21日目。日本習字の検定をまたまとめて提出できそうです。

One of the assignments was drawing Kokeshi dolls and i had troubles to both draw and color. The face is so easy looking sad and almost crying while I want them to look happy ! One small change of brush strokes make such a big difference. 中でもこけしの課題が難しく、ほんの少しの太さや筆のぬき加減で顔の表情が変わってしまい、暖かく幸せそうなイメージに仕上げるのに苦労しました。

日本習字墨画部 9、10、11、12月号 初伝課題 NihonShuji Ink Brush Paintings Monthly Assignments for Sep. Oct. Nov. and Dec.

Thank you & level up!

Sending Assignments to Japan

After the COVID-19 pandemic, I couldn’t order any Shodo supply, like new ink, papers, and brushes, and i had to wait most of writing for Nihon Shuji Monthly assignments.

Finally, they re-started to take international order and now I can write whatever I want!!

I could finish couple assignments and they are ready to ship to Japan. (And cats approved too)



Thank you and level up!
