Creative Interpretations - Cherry Blossom Bridge

Thought this might be a good picture to paint. One of my free wall paper finds.

Just smearing a little paint around.

Looks like Japan in late March or April.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Cherry Blossom Brid

Swampy, Your timing is pretty good.. on Okinawa in the Ryukyu Islands the cherry blossoms begin to bloom in late January, and the area is covered with pink flowers. I think the Cherry Blossom Festival in Okinawa is known as the earliest cherry blossom festival in Japan.

At least thats the way I remember it from long ago in the distant past!

Juergen, Steve, Pete, OB! Great postings. I thought the folks up in the frozen north would like to paint a little touch of spring. :-)

Sort of pointillistic.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Cherry Blossom Brid

Tried to make a focal point of the bridge. Lost my way a bit on the foreground colors, but just left it that way. Like all the renditions presented of such a beautiful spot.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Cherry Blossom Brid

Super LK and MA!

Craig, the "falling blossoms" was not intentional. I think it's more a result of the texture in my paint brushes letting white areas of canvas show through. :-)
