TAD 8 Crow Flying Through Bamboo

Learning through practice and errors, I’m enjoying playing with different papers, strokes, and images.  I’m discovering for myself some things that work and some that don’t.  I was struggling with leaves, and then had some very rythmic music on one morning and found myself matching brushstrokes to the beat – and it got better.

Today I was looking at brush painting by masters – and it could get discouraging – but instead it was inspiring.  Back to practice.

    These are really quite lovely… This is an art form I’ve been kind of itching to try. Are you studying from a book or taking a class? I’d love to know.

    I’m taking a class for a couple of months, which is very helpful. won’t be able to continue after this month, but hope that by then I will know enough to continue on my own with the help of Internet, books, and maybe an occasional lesson. It really is fun and very relaxing. My teacher is a retired art teacher who started doing this a number of years ago when she saw it advertised as something to help you relax. Hope you will be able to give it a try!
