We are learning the Ohara-school-Ikebana style, the most common Ikebana-style today in Japan and the world.
|Before we starting~|
Until now the ikebana styles we have made were not so difficult but you have to follow certain rules.
Today we learned the "Inclining form"
You have to carefully look after the angles and the arrangment lines, the length of the flowers, everything has strict rules. But in arranging and chosing the flowers, you are free^^
Viola, this was my today's Ikebana!
Later we had to arrange an ikebana without help and guidance from our teachers.
This was my second ikebana.
Last week and today too my teachers said that my ikebana was really beautiul and perfect..well I am happy about that but I don't think this way^^; I think mostly today my ikebana looked messy and I wasn't concentrated at all. It was hard this time somehow, last time for the first time, it was more easier.
From next week on we are going to learn more complicated levels.
Some other pics of today~
Going down one of the many hills here in my university's area^^ Japan is very mountained in general which can be exhausting but somehow I like it. It's a nice feeling if you stand on a hill and have great views^^
And then when I came home...there waited something.. a package from my best friend and my mom!!! (*//////////*)
They send me some clothes I had forgotten at home, chocolates and cute present*_*
I was so happy, somehow presents or letters from home are so nice to get^^
Now I'm going to prepare my dinner...
