Temple in Kyoto, Japan

7"x9", Water color pencil on Canson paper

This is a painting of an old temple in Kyoto, Japan.  This goes as a submission to Virtual Paintout Challenge for April. Done in water color pencil, an entirely new medium for me, it was quite a challenge to get the blending right. Though not entirely satisfied, I thought it came out ok for my first attempt. I realised, acrylics are so much more forgiving when it comes to undoing mistakes.


  1. You are very talented, Anita. Good composition and nice colors. Very nice painting.

  2. Thanks Jean, for your nice words! I've been admiring your work for a while now on many of the challenges. Your passion for art keeps me motivated. :-)

  3. I loved this painting, it's really beautiful.. congratulations.
