#sketches: Hiroshige’s “The Grove at the Suijin Shrine, 8-1856”

17 Mar

I drew Hiroshige’s “The Grove at the Suijin Shrine, 8-1856”, another lovely illustration of (the surroundings of) Edo.

I made it on iPad mini, using Artrage. Made with layers, pencil, watercolour, rubber and patience.

I spent 3 to 5 hours every day, and it took me four days. I underestimated both its complexity and the amount of time it would require to reproduce it. But I love drawing and can spend hours on it; my iPad battery gives up way earlier than I.
