Cypress of Sighs

The cat is pretty much out of the bag on the secret project Dasiuke Tsutsumi has been spearheading for the past several months, so here is my contribution to his efforts.

"Cypress of Sighs" Gouache and Acrylic on Board. 16x20 inches

His website has yet to announce the details of the project.... so I'll keep hush-hush on what it's all about for now. Suffice to say, I was incredibly honored to be invited for the ride and I can't wait until he makes the formal announcement so I can pass it on to you.

Here's a detail on what turned out to be my favorite part of the illustration:

And the sketch:

You can find large and small prints of the painting in my Etsy shop. Thanks for stopping by!
