Geisha Sketchbook Pages

I’ve spent a few day in Kyoto, Japan.

Not in person but through a pencil, I have been exploring and travelling, discovering a new culture and investigating the Geisha or more accurately to Kyoto, the Geiko girls of the region.

I won’t go into much details on the backgrounds and traditions of Geisha in this post due to it just being a sketchbook share, but I am going to put together a small body of artworks and I’ll dive into the deeper stuff when posting them.

Let’s get stuck in –

These sketches have been an nice introductory exercise into the world of the Geisha. The next phase for me is to drawn and paint a few portrait pieces and also one or two pieces with a more narrative style.

Also as a reminder of my last blog post, I did complete a charcoal drawing of the Nude Geisha, click the link or the image below to see that post!
