This is a painting of Itogahama beach. It is a very beautiful beach. It is in Hiji town, Oita prefecture.This painting of the beach was done in about 2011. And I think I painted this picture on location. What I like about this painting is the feeling of peacefulness it exudes.
Here are a few of my earliest seascape paintings. My interest in seascapes began in 2011. At that time, I started cycling to the bay. This bay is just a ten minute bicycle ride from my house. It is called Beppu bay. I did many on the spot paintings of this bay. I felt inspired by the beauty of the bay view at evening time. However, most of my paintings were very bad. And nearly all those paintings I threw away. But these few paintings survived.
