Watercolor paintings of countryside scenes in Japan

I’ve traveled many times into the Japanese countryside looking for scenes to paint and for many years was met with disappointment. Only after much searching and a lot of failed paintings did I find beautiful scenes and moments to paint. I love to be out in the Japanese countryside. There is just a feeling of being a stranger in a mysterious land full of history and beauty.
