This is a five-day art challenge that I accepted. I was tagged to do a three pieces painting for five days by Mary at Oil Pastels By Mary. Mary is a very talented artist. Her work is incredible. You will enjoy what you find at her blog.
Day one: I did bamboos (13.5 in x 18 in), lotus (13.5 in x 18 in) and orchids (13.5 in x13.5 in) paintings. They are all painted using Chinese rice papers, ink & watercolour. Bamboo (summer) and orchid (spring) are two of the four gentlemen that we have to learn as a foundation in Chinese painting.
I would love to see Alf Sukatmo at Be Illustrated join in on the challenge, he has a great blog. Alf is an illustrator, graphic designer and a talented artist. He has added many awards to his background too.
