Evening cherry

1000: Evening cherry (Haruyo)

A classic pose: a young woman sits gracefully in a vivid floral kimono, to a backdrop of cherry blossoms.

You will need to look out for the "mistakes" in the picture on the box, but this should be a fun puzzle, with plenty of texture and no tedious uniform areas.

The artist Morita Haruyo studied both Japanese art and kimono design, and she combines these with elements of her own Western-influenced technique. (She travelled to London in 1977, exactly the year I [Brian Chandler] first came to Tokyo.)

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.

* The picture on the box has a number of "mistakes", slight differences from the puzzle.
