Pictorial experimentation

Processing aspects of two different cultures (both European and Japanese) in the idea, in the characters and in the materials. I feel close to Japanese culture and I love it as the Italian one. 
The setting is Japanese spa on winter night.   *washi=Japanese paper

For these two illustrations I took inspiration from my favourite Japanese model Ai Tominaga.
