Japanese Brushstroke Painting - Intermediate (Beginners Welcome)
Monday Morning Workshop
Although this is a more advanced technique in sumi-e, beginners are welcome. The first class requires knowledge of only one brushstoke which will be reviewed at the beginning.
For those who have already had the basic sumi-e course these classes will give you the chance to move forward with your training. Roslyn will teach the 'ink wash method' used to give fur a softness and add three dimensional aspects to your landscape paintings.
Note for Watercolour Artists: Washi paper, when wet, responds somewhat like very wet watercolour paper, although perhaps more absorbent, so knowledge of watercolour can aid in the understanding of the ink wash method in sumi-e and perhaps aid in your future watercolour paintings.
