Still within the grounds of the hotel, I saw this back-lit evergreen tree and tried to capture the effect of the sunlit leaves against the shadowed background. This one was done on day 2 and throughout the trip, I tried to finish a watercolor study every day. It was early fall in Hokkaido and some of the trees had wonderful colors. In Tomaro, we were surrounded by open fields and mountains so a perfect spot for an artist really. We took many photographs and saw some amazing sights!
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
