Tokyo 2020 previous project next project textile painting home


I painted this with the leftover colors from my daughter's painting, while assisting her. It's a 100% spontaneous improvisation. Recently, Japan had won the rights to host the summer Olympiad 2020 in the capital, Tokyo. I had remembered that and used a typical Japanese motif, the sun rising over the ocean.

And this is the painting of my daughter. I only sketched the black outlines, this time with special crayons for textiles. She did this all by herself, and was very concentrated and calm through it!
