Last year in December my husband and I went to a Christian camp at the base of Mt. Fuji. It was one of the first chances I had to see Mt. Fuji close up during winter. Using a picture I took of this trip I decided to create this watercolour for my friend who loves Mt. Fuji.
For this picture I used Archers 300gms Rough paper with Windsor and Newton paints. I also added some Japanese ink to the impressions of trees in the foreground.
I decided to keep the trees at the front impressionistic as I did not want to detract from Mt. Fuji. I was not too happy with my sky. I think I overworked it... fiddled too much. I think I will try this painting again.
