Marunouchi in Tokyo

This is a painting of the view I used to enjoy on my way home after working in Marunouchi in Tokyo. It's looking north from Hibiya Station, with the Imperial Palace grounds on the left and the light of Marunouchi and beyond on the right. (I tried to show this in the lighter sky on the right.) For those who've never visited, this is a stunning part of Tokyo at any time of day and in just about any weather. Walk left and you have the quiet grace of the Imperial Palace and walk right and you have the shimmering lights of Ginza. (gouache on paper)
