Love it. Great shadows on the branches. May I ask what kind of paper/canvas you use?

Sorry your comment did not appear in WP, I only found this out in email. I use rice paper (xuen paper) for all the paintings I did. The colour is Chinese painting colour. You can not use ordinary watercolour to paint which will bleed. The ink is also Chinese painting black ink. I prefer to use ink stick and grind the ink on ink stone as I use it.

Thanks! I use Chinese ink myself for my illustrations, I love it. Is the texture of the Chinese painting colour different frm the ink?

Try using Chinese rice paper (raw xuen paper) not the Japanese rice paper you will get that dark/light (3D) effect in one stroke of brush. The ink and color texture should be the same. They will not bleed once dried on xuen paper.

So we use same kind of colurs, it serms. I use water colour paper, though. I’ll look out for the Chinese rice paper, would be fun to try. Thanks a lot!

Do you know any Chinese or someone who is able? You can try to browse this http://www.taobao.com there are tons of rice papers even colour one. The best one is from anhui – red star brand. Good luck.

Thanks! I do not know any Chinese, though, but I guess it should be possible to find in English as well 🙂
