This is a five-day art challenge that I accepted. I was tagged to do a three pieces painting for five days by Mary atOil Pastel by Mary. Mary is a very talented artist. Her work is incredible. You will enjoy what you find at her blog.
Day three: I did magnolia with birds (13.5 in x 18 in), blue peonies (13.5 in x 18 in) and tulips (13.5 in x 18 in) paintings. They are all painted using Chinese rice papers, ink & watercolour. In Chinese painting width of strokes determine by: Center Brush Stroke which is the basis of the Chinese art and calligraphy. It uses only 1/3 of the brush and limits the width of stroke; Slant Stroke and Full Stroke which uses the full wipe length of the brush. Remember practice makes perfect.
I would love to see Brad young at Brad Young Art join in on the challenge, he has a great blog. Brad drew since he was very young. You will have fun and find humour in every drawing and doodles he did at his blog.
