We were back to Chinese Painting classes today, and as with each term the subject matter is tailored to the season and we start off with a study or two in ink before we’re allowed to use colour.
This is a great plan for me as I haven’t practised at all during the break and quite frankly I need to relearn the basic techniques before I confuse myself with colour as well!
This term we are well and truly into Autumn and our first exercise is Chrysanthemums – the class actually wasn’t too bad despite my lack of practice, all except my control of wetness, which isn’t (controlled, I mean).
I didn’t realise today in class but the subject ties in nicely with Mother’s Day next Sunday, so I’ll dedicate this to mine – some ‘mums for my Mum 🙂 Thanks for all your encouragement, Mum! xx
