July Sketch Project #6 The Imperial Confectionery Box


ORIGINAL - Graphite Sketch on A5 180gsm Acid Free Paper, plus my embossed stamp.

So luckily I wrote notes when I'm travelling and sketching - so this actually was when I was in Japan and visited this museum that was filled with silver gifts that were given to the Imperial Palace, and this one and no.4 of my sketch project are confectionery boxes. I love how everything was so thoughtfully and beautifully made back in those days, very different from our throw away society today sadly. So lets celebrate with this beautiful worldly piece :). I haven't quite finished - I will add the shading in. But is ready for a forever home xx
