Mountain and Boat Paintings in Kakejiku

These paintings done as a pair. It was painted by Mariusz Szmerdt for an exhibition in Spring. I had proposed to do it in a joint kind of framing similar to this kakejiku. However, the artist preferred to have this done in two separate scrolls. So I made this in a three style format. I used the light gold and white wave to be like a wind, and the chumawashi gold pattern cloth with an arabesque. The ten/chi is a light, solid tan. The hanging string or kakehimo is a light gold called Usukin. The jikusaki used were a wooden black lacquer.
