"Fireworks at Ryogoku (Ryogoku Hanabi)"
No. 98 from One Hundred Famous Views of Edo, 8th month of 1858.
By Utagawa Hiroshige (Ando)
July's Art Bead Scene Challenge is this festive image of this print by Utagawa Hiroshige that shows pleasure boats on the Sumida River, with Ryogoku Bridge in the center. Fireworks add to the excitement in the print. The color inspiration is monochromatic from black to blue with touches of brick red and muted rose. I choose to work with the denim shade of blue.

I feel like I captured the colors in the print. What do you think?
