#253 Sushi Choices


5"x 7" oil on masonite sold

At Mt. Fuji and the prettiest light comes in the window at the right time of day if you sit in the booths. I always get the dragon rolls: avocado, eel and tempura shrimp. What's not to like?

Really like how this came out. Started with fresh color and kept it vibrant. Let the details go and looked for the temp variations once the masses were in. Wish they all came off this smoothly. :)

Temperature, light and color control, and such deliberate brushstrokes...it all works so well! Sushi sounds good too!

Super transition from warm to cool passages, and simplified blocks of description here...as always. I love to see the work here on your blog...!

you are right...it has just the right amount of detail. Your work is unpretentious.... but solidly appealing and interesting--five stars!
