Hanami

Yozakura »

What better announcement of spring coming than blossom blooming. What better place of observing sakura (cherry blossom)- hanami or plum blossom – umemi, than Japan. In this kacho-e I tried to capture and preserve hanami with sakura on 90-100%, a moment when you observe branches individually. I used my sakura flower approach that has delivered childish- cartoonish- 2D effect, which, with multiple layers, has this whimsical, charming and joyful sensation. A proper Japanese word would be KAWAII!
