Ocean by Boso Peninsula


Setting up a canvas on the oceanfront at the base of the southern tip of Boso Peninsula, I was excited about drawing the churning ocean and rocky beach. Keizo Koyama, a student at Keio University at the time, rented a fisherman’s house with his friend in order to create his artwork, so I paid a visit in order to see what he was doing. He appeared interested in my realistic style, but he made a lasting impression in my mind for his deeply involved romantic style.
