Hokusai - The Great Wave

I found this painting so amazing that felt like painting it myself.. so I could see what did the guy felt when he did it..
well I can say.. that the drops of water took ages !!
Obviously is quite far away from his, though the experience was quite good.. Listening to some good music, stopping for a coffee.. and just enjoying the feeling of drawing with ink over white paper... it's like time stands still.


  1. Hey Maxi,

    I saw a documentary about Hokusai and his paintings and they talked about his 36 views of Fuji,that are woodblock prints. But the most famous one is The Breaking Wave Off Kanagawa, the one your are talking about.... it's so beautiful with the Mountain Fuji, the wave and the boats that disappears in the wave.
