Presenting an illustration from The Ornamental Arts of Japan (1882) as today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page. It is a Japanese woodcut after the original drawing by Toyeki, 16th century.

“It is worthy of note with what few and decided brush strokes the birds have been represented; and the masterly manner in which every characteristic detail has been expressed rather than clearly delineated. All the masters of this school were celebrated for their bold free-hand style of delineation, chiefly in monochrome. Birds, whose plumage offered favourable fields for the exercise of skilful single brush-stroke work, were naturally favourite subjects.”
