CHINESE WATERCOLOR PAINTING AND RICE PAPER
My mother loves Sumi brush painting and watercolors. She decided to expand my horizons this summer and got out the rice paper and the most amazing bamboo Sumi brushes. I had so much fun learning how to delicately move the brush to paint butterflies and bees. It is almost like calligraphy in it's precise brush strokes and abstract movements. Lovely painting, and so much fun to learn something new! Thanks, Mom!
