Keiji Yamazaki has outstanding painting skill, especially when depicting trees. It seems as if the trees he paints are full of vitality.
In this painting, while Keiji Yamazaki does not use any outline for drawing trunks or branches and depicts them boldly by using a technique called “tsuketate,” he depicts red leaves delicately and in a true-to-life way with the “tarashikomi” technique. While the background is slightly painted with “sumi” (ink), giving a tense yet tranquil atmosphere to the work, the dragonflies provide relaxation to the tension. This in turn, balances the feelings of relaxation and the feelings of tension. His outstanding work shows his control of the balance between relaxation and tension. This is what makes the work tasteful.
tsuketate (contourless painting)
Also called “byoukotsu.” A kind of “mokkotsu” technique in which the volume and energy of the brushstroke is used to express an object with the shading of “sumi” (ink) and paints. No draft drawing or outlines are used.
A high level technique of Japanese-style painting for attaining natural blur by making use of the difference in the specific gravity of pigments.
