In January workshop, we will study how to make unique and appealing composition in your botanical art. Students are recommended to select their own specimens, in pots preferably, because they need to be studied for long period of time. The composition studies will be developed into watercolor paintings. February: Bold & Modern Design in Ink Composition studies from January will be further developed into more traditional ink study, but in modern design. Using unique features of crow quill pen nibs, students will be able to find this 'almost forgotten' medium truly aesthetic. When: Jan.10 & 24, Feb. 21 & 28, 2015 Where: Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods, 21850 N. Riverwoods Rd, Riverwoods, IL 60015 Spe

31. Holiday Wishes

Amma and Roses, ©Heeyoung Kim My holiday wishes to all those who pray for loved ones.  I was privileged to be at a beautiful ceremony of Amma, the hugging saint. Lots of rose petals, candle lights, chants.... It was absolutely beautiful and compassionate. Deeply moved, I painted this.  Graphite pencil and watercolor were used on a full size paper, 22" x 30".  Might be a beautiful holiday gift to those we cherish.  Prints available.
