Natsu no yoru (Summer Niaht)


As the theme was Japan's four seasons, I chose my favorite season, summer. Although I say it is my favorite, I come from Okinawa where we do not experience the ‘cherry blossom viewing’, ‘autumn leaves’, ‘white Christmas’ or other events that the rest of the Japanese enjoy, so I never had a chance to like anything but summer...
I decided to draw a summer’s night with fireworks reflected in the surface of water. The sea, a yukata kimono, fireworks, a shrine, all these things that I wanted to draw derive from the scenery of my childhood when the sky was full of fireflies, so I have included all my memories in this picture.
