Ejiri in Suruga Province (A Sudden Gust of Wind) after Hokusai
In A Sudden Gust of Wind I like how Hokusai treated this autumn scenery with Mount Fuji represented ghastly with just one line, breaking away from traditional canon of Fuji being presented as strong and solid object. For this painting I have used linen canvas for its texture and porosity and treated acrylic as watercolors. The effect of this is melancholic feeling of some long forgotten and fragmented memory of the autumn.
