絵手紙 Etegami

etegami
I’m doing a monster translation at the moment but I need a break. After yesterday’s storm it’s nice to look at the blue sky. I thought I would try making an etegami 絵手紙 or picture-letter.

I used GIMP mostly because you can get watercolour brush stroke and sumi stroke brushes. There’s also a canvas filter to give your paper background some texture.

My etegami reads ‘There is one small cloud in the sky’. 空の中小さい雲が一つ。
