Embarking Mount Fuji-san


I wanted to try painting a landscape this week. I thought it would be easy but it was a lot difficult than I anticipated. I’ve never taken any watercolor classes so I don’t know any techniques; nevertheless, I shall continue on experimenting...

This was supposed to be Mount Fuji-san a.k.a. Mount Fuji which is situated between the border of Yamashani and Shizuoka prefectures, just west of Tokyo. It is Japan’s tallest mountain – measuring 3776 meters. Mount Fuji is a dormant volcano that last erupted in 1708. If you love mountain climbing, Mt. Fuji, it’s open during July and August via several routes. So get your gear ready and start the "adventure"!

Oh I would love to go with you to Mt. Fuji. It looks so amazing! I'm sure we'll have a lot of fun. I try to paint every week but I get lazy as well lol. It's been years since I painted, I'm taking baby steps. I hope you can find some time to paint Sachan. You're an incredible artist.

Hello, Cat! I recently discovered Sachie & Goma, and she was kind enough to lead me to you. I just ADORE your art! They are so whimsical and dreamy and playful. Lots of smiles. :)

I participate in an online art community called IllustrationFriday.com. Once a week, they provide a new word, and artists from all over are invited to draw whatever comes to mind. It's actually quite fun, and I've met so many wonderful people. I invite you to take a look.

I really enjoyed looking at all your beautiful work.
