Description for my japanese lit project. i got out of doing a 12 page essay by just doing an art project. had to paint 5 paintings in 5 different historical Japanese styles. this one is of the edo period, sumi-e. uhh i couldnt spend that much time on it, this was 12 hours before i had to take my final, so i had 5 hours to do my project and then study for it. painter, 40 min. i messed up a lot, and i was figuring out the brushes for a few mintues.
