Kuretake Gansai Japanese Watercolour Sets contain whole pans and are available in the following sets: Do not confuse this artist with Terauchi Manjiro — they are two different artists and their medium (oils versus watercolours), subjects (nude versus landscapes), and signatures are completely different. If you have a watercolour with a signature similar to those of the Terauchi paintings shown below, then your painting is not by Terauchi Manjiro. If you need further proof, here is a watercolour signature that clearly shows the artist's first name as 'Fuku' Gansai come in much larger pans than typical Western half pans. Traditional Japanese watercolour brushes are larger and need more space to avoid damaging the bristles. Being larger, they are also suitable for use with calligraphy brushes.These brushes work well for painting in details.

Akashiya “Pine” Paper, bright white with a pleasant texture for smooth brush strokes. It has low bleed, which makes it suitable for calligraphy or more precise painting. After learning basic drawing and watercolor painting skills at a local community school in San Diego, she took on her first project as an artist together with her father, a renowned scholar of French literature in Japan. Through the Azure Sea and Sky of Provence: A Tribute to Her Joie de Vivre (Kosei Publishing, Osaka, Japan) was published in August, 2003, authored by her father and illustrated by Keiko. From then on, she intensely taught herself to be fluent in watercolor painting, just as one would do to master a foreign language. Gansai have a glossier finish than Western watercolours, especially in areas where they are applied generously. All watercolour paints are made by combining pigment and a binder. Gansai are traditionally bound with animal glue, beeswax, sugar and other natural binders. Western watercolours are bound with gum arabic. The type of binder used gives each type of paint a specific appearance. These Kuretake Gansai Watercolours are very intense colours with exceptional brilliance and brightness. All shades blend perfectly together. Gansai paints are said to be unsuitable for mixing, producing muddy tones. We recommend trying this out for yourself.|Keiko was born in Kyoto, Japan. As a child growing up in an art-loving family, she always enjoyed drawing and painting and won many awards in children’s art contests. However, art was not her chosen field of study later on. She earned a B.A. in intercultural communication (International Christian University, Tokyo, Japan) and an M.A. in international education (UCLA, California). We recommend also trying them out on traditional Western watercolour paper, including the Traveler’s Company watercolour insert for the Traveler’s Notebooks.

Generally, it is not recommended to paint directly from the pans, but to mix the paints with water in a palette. Akashiya plum flower shaped palettes allow you to separate colours or different saturations of a single colour from each other, or from ink. the surname YOSHIDA is written in capital letters only (not mixed upper/lower case) with the bottom leg of the 'Y' being curly The artist E. Kato may be Eizo Kato (1906-1972) or Eika Kato (1859-1942, born in Fukui Japan) -- most probably the latter. I've seen one painting dated 1911, so definitely a pre-war artist. Gansai also have a much higher pigment to binder ratio than Western watercolours. They are designed to be used in a single layer on absorbent Japanese paper rather than in several layers. The colours are more vibrant and saturated than Western ones, even when diluted. There is very little colour fade from wet to dry. This high saturation makes Gansai ideal for sketches, while allowing the artist to lighten the colours by increasing dilution. Because the binder adhesion in gansai is weaker, the colours are also easier to lift (removing with a wet brush to lighten an area).One of the best ways to boost your creativity is to try something new and take yourself out of your comfort zone. You can use them to paint in the classic Western or Japanese styles, or our current passion - Etegami. Etegami is a perfect art form for beginners, requires no special talent and is guaranteed to be lots of fun! See our etegami introduction here for more information.

Gansai ( 顔彩) are traditional Japanese watercolour paints. |Very little is known about the majority of the pre-war Japanese watercolour artists. It is generally accepted that the painters of early Japanese watercolours (from late Meiji to early Showa) studied the Western-style watercolour technique, with many artists also having a Western-style education. In most cases the artists signed their names in the usual Western way using Roman letters. Despite the fact that most were superbly talented artists, their paintings can be obtained very inexpensively at auction. Kissho Gansai is a traditional Japanese watercolour paint. The brilliant colours are ideal for traditional Japanese paintings, creating sketches, illustrations, sumi-e, nanga painting and much more. A. Yoshida signatures. Note the "H" character in the name "Yoshida" is well defined. Clearly this artist can write a disctint "H" character. Now compare this "H" character to the first initial. We can obviously see that the first initial is not an "H" character at all; it is an "A" character. Also note that the "Y" character is always written with a "curly leg" (called a decender).

Through all these years, Keiko knew there was in her heart the growing desire to someday become an artist. That, fueled by her love of travel and strong interest in other cultures, eventually found its way out in 2003.Artists represented here include R. Aoki, H. Fukaya, S. Hodo, S.
