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.
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.
