Description: Here is a piece of art that I had fun drawing and turning into a lesson. It is a depiction of the original works of art by Japanese artist Hokusai. The title of this work is called 'The Great Wave Off Kanagawa and it was done around 1830 and 1833. A couple of things are missing from my art and that is the two boats filled with men trying to fight the wave. Some speculate that it is a tsunami, but in all reality it's thought to be a large wave or rouge wave. If you look closely at the drawing, you will see Mt. Fiji off to the right which is also something that is seen in the original work. I actually have a poster of The Great Wave off Kanagawa and I think it is a simple, yet beautiful art piece. I hope you enjoy this tut, I will be back in a few with more lessons for you all.
