Sumie Spring Leaves on Brown Cloth Kakejiku

This sumie scroll of leaves is available for sale. Please email to for details.

This scroll turned out beautifully for a springtime or summertime based kakejiku. It was painted by Ren Adams. The strong brush strokes reminded me of power, and so a dark brown cloth was used to really accent the picture. This is a small scroll, and Jikusaki were not used. (Truth be told, I did not have any in inventory...) However, it is still a beautiful scroll for any springtime display. The green of the Ichimonji (brocade) also gives the viewer a sense of the greenery in spring and summer.
