Shinto Gate

October 27, 2020 20:56 GMT

This is a Japanese Torii which marks the entrance to a Shinto temple. Once you cross the gate you are on holy land. It prevents evil spirits from entering the sanctuary. I painted this piece in soft pastels with some digital post-processing.

There are thousands of gates like this one in Japan, perhaps the best examples are in the old capital Kyoto.



Purchase “Shinto Gate” (8 x 10 inch), £10

I’m now selling art prints of this pastel painting! This is museum-quality print on archival, acid-free paper. Orders are fulfilled by Printful with shipping to Europe, UK, North America, and other locations.

Also, this week I did a bunch boxes in different perspective settings, these are just as an exercise in perspecrive.
