Ever been amazed by Chinese calligraphy brush strokes?
Wouldn't it be nice when you can be that much confident with your brush?
During this very snowy winter, I tried some calligraphy, which is in my blood thanks to have master calligraphers as a father and a grandfather. As I know my brush handling skill comes from my calligraphy technique, I came up with the idea of having a workshop with this topic.
Chinese calligraphy is all about brush handling. It looks very intimidating, but the basic is simple,
believe or not. I trust everyone can learn just enough techniques to try for botanical painting.
I am very excited with this totally new topic.
