Heavy snow at Kurama
“Heavy Snow at Kurama” (2012). Watercolor on paper, 38x57cm. Done in 1 day using fieldnotes and photographs. Kurama Village, North of Kyoto, is among photographer’s favourite for taking snowy scenes. This small village is also the site for the Kurama Fire Festival in summer; at that nightly event, thousands of tourists flock into the village’s only road, making it virtually impossible to get a good vantage point or even to move.
