Sumi E demonstration

For your interest and my relaxation at Penguin Market tomorrow I will paint some works influenced by my study of Chinese Brush Painting. I do not rigidly apply the accuracy of expert practitioners, rather I adopt the principles and philosophies to my watercolour and ink paintings (as in the example of Japonica above). My aim is to capture the essence of the subject using a minimum of fluid brush strokes with soft goat hair brushes. Some will be in watercolour, in others I will use the solid ink stick and a stone in the traditional way. Come and find out why this is so meditative… you can even have a go.

NEXT WEEK…. creating with Polymer clay.

    Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Aol News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Google News? I’ve been striving for a while but I never seem to be able to make it happen! Thank you

    • I was listed in Google News?! Great… but can’t help you as i have no idea how it happened. I don’t understand everything about computers and cyberspace. Am glad you likemy blog. I try to keep it interesting….. all arty stuff but a bit educaional, a bit social, a bit informative/marketing and some pics to break up the text areas.
