Hokusai - One of the Greats - May 2012

Hokusai is a very well known Japanese artist.

I hope you will take this opportunity to study some of his work. Make a copy , imitate his techinques, or just enjoy reading about and viewing his work.

One thing that comes across loud and clear is his love of artist creation and life forms. AND he studied everything!!!

Here are a few images and a Wikipedia link for quick reference.

Hope we can do a few things inspired by this world class artist.

Hokusai " manga" study images

Geishas

I love your studies Robin, especially the umbrellas!!. I haven't looked much at Hokusai but I am inspired to look more. I agree -clean and beautiful design.

Forgot to mention your lady, June. I can't seem to quite get that flow that you capture. Very nice.
