四季がテ一マとの事で、色鮮やかな秋から雪の白さの美しい冬へと移り変わってゆく辺りの時期が特に好きです。
今回の絵のテ一マとしては、その中でも、よリ日本らしい風情を感じられる『秋の紅葉』を選びました。
春の桜の絢爛な美しさも綺麗で好きですが、紅葉の暖かな色は枯れ落ちてゆく流れの傻さも相まって、より複雑な心情を呼び起こされる気がします。絵として伝わリやすい情景や和装が良いかと悩みましたが、結局自分らしいイメージを表現するスタイルに落ち着きました。


The theme is the four seasons and my favorite time is when the bright colors of autumn are transformed into the beautiful white of snow in the winter.
For this picture I chose to use ‘autumn maples’ as I think that this is the most typical of Japanese taste.
The gorgeous cherry blossom of spring is also pretty and I like that too. However, I think that the warm colors of the maple leaves as they wither and fall represents the transience of life and brings forth more complicated emotions.
I spent some time wondering what kind of view or kimono would best bring this out, but in the end I produced a work typical of my own style.
