Kangeiko no nukumori (A Touch of Warmth During Midwinter Training)


I thought I would illustrate a scene from everyday life, then groping for a way to make the image slightly unusual, I produced this illustration.
One of the disciplines practiced by adherents of the martial arts is to undergo training during the coldest season, at the coldest time of the day; this has been done since ancient times as a way of strengthening the spirit. I decided to illustrate this scene, incorporating the typical Japanese color contrast of red and white. Even when striving for self- improvement under grueling conditions, I feel that there is still room for a little kindness, so in this picture I have depicted the elder girl as having wrapped a scarf around her younger sister’s neck as they both carry out their training.
