The single most astonishing fact about Asian Ink Painting is that each brush stroke is a defining move that produces a portion of the painting that is neither improved upon nor corrected. No sketch is prepared and no model is used; the artist paints with rapid, mentally constructed strokes transporting a 'mind image' to paper. Chinese Brush Painting is meant to be more than a representation of an object; it is also a symbolic expression. Rather than looking at the subject as you paint, you bring it forth from your mind and heart.
Each class will cover a new subject.
Ming will give step by step instruction and demonstrations using Chinese brush and inks. Subjects; peony, orchids, pine tree, camellia, wisteria, grapes, Bamboo, lotus blossom, roses, chrysanthemum, plum blossom, landscape.
