Kamishibai presentation on Genjiro
Teaching Japanese Painting Technique
Genjiro: Elmer, first decide what you want to draw. Surrounding objects should be less focused. Then the main object will be highlighted.
Elmer: Genjiro-san, this method will attract viewers to the main object. Impressionist painting considers symmetric points of view. Japanese style is non-symmetric. The use of colors is also different.
Genjiro: Yes, you have already learned so much. We don’t emphasize light and shade. In other words we don’t draw everything you see on the canvas.
