For today's Paint Party Friday, I am showing a group of pieces in the Chinese style of painting. I helped out an art friend who was teaching a quick Chinese painting class and after we set up, she let me take the class. We made 3 different shades of black and used rice paper. We were told to hold our brushes horizontally and to just dab the paper.We didn't know she would then tell us to look at these random dabs and create something! We used a felt tip pen to quickly draw in some details. We could not pick up the brush again... boy, was that hard. To finish it, we added our signature as a chop using a red sharpie. My three painting turned into a bunny, a school of fish and some herons! I always love trying new things or a new approach. Don't you?
Hope you'll try something new this week.
artfully yours, gerri
