Kotani-En Japanese Garden
Gateway (studio painting from my sketch)
Many thanks to the owner of Kotani-En for allowing us to visit this
wonderful treasure up in the hills. There was much to see and
paint so I tried to sketch quickly. I was very taken with the view
through the gate into the garden and did a painting from my quick
sketch. I wanted to show the peace and calmness of the garden.
