Learn to capture the spirit of
mischievous cats in quick strokes. Discover the art of sumi-e, East
Asian brush painting, in which every stroke becomes the petal of a
flower. Expand your creativity and enhance your artwork to use
gestural brushwork to capture the spirits of animals and the beauty of
flowers. Author of Barron's best selling "Chinese Brush Painting:
Flowers", Joan Lok will cover a variety of subjects, including cats,
squirrels, grapes, pumpkins, bird of paradise, cockscomb, daisy, cherry
blossoms, and apples. This workshop will be packed with
demonstration, discussion, and individual help.
Day 1 - Flowers and Fruit -
Introduction/ refresher to the fundamentals on the first day. We
will paint a unique flower, the bird of paradise, and practice how to
load the brush with multiple colors to create beautiful petals.
Then, we will paint grapes and their leaves by using both cneter strokes
and side strokes.
Day 2- Cute animals - We will start
with a small squirrel eating a pumpkin. Then, we will work on
painting cute cats and kitten in different posts and fun color patterns.
You may bring photos to paint your favorite cats, or use the samples
that Joan provides.
Day 3 - Garden Flowers and Plants -
We will work on popular garden flowers and plants including cherry
blossom, cockscomb, daisy and apple to accompany the cats and kittens in
