Medetai Fish and Sasaki Bamboo – The first one of a series..

Today I painted Medetai Fish and Sasaki Bamboo, from the series Uozukushi (Every Variety of Fish) by Utagawa Hiroshige. The original is a polychrome woodblock print.

Utagawa Hiroshige was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist, considered the last great master of that tradition. He is best known for his landscapes, such as the series The Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō and The Sixty-nine Stations of the Kiso Kaidō and for his depictions of birds and flowers.

I think this picture is very funny and cheerful.



Here is the link to the original one:
