so my side project for over easter is to paint the japanese plates from the book. ive decided to make 9. 3 sets with 3 plates in each set. these will probably be a set of traditional japanese characters such as geishas, old wise men etc another set of japanese nature, birds, sakura trees, fish etc. and finally a last set of traditional japanese views such as mount fuji. from around the time most plates would have been white with the paintings in blue but ill incorporate some dusty pink colours to match the drawing room. here is a couple of pictures i found to inspire my sets.
