Seitei was a talented painter of animals and flowers. He made prints and paintings on the basis of painstaking nature studies. Here as well he devoted much attention to the cherry blossoms and the detailing of the creatures, for instance the wings of the dragonfly in the painting of summer. In contrast, the waterfall in the background is rendered in broad strokes of the brush.
