Dear Creative friends
We did hydrangea last week. We learned to load our brush shallow for the flowers and deep for the leaves. I did not video tape our session, so I use the one below for your reference.
We will continue to work on the leaves this week and talk about composition of cluster of leaves. Sorry for the late post. I look forward to both of the Chinese language and brush painting classes tomorrow.

We painted Daffodils this week. I video taped the demonstration and uploaded on Youtube for your reference: . v=3QWzZImnuJE&feature=plcp&context=C3dea511UDOEgsToPDskJvpjw5oNiHPHT-vKFI0knl Your students' paintings are displayed in the hall way for public viewing. Attached is the demo painting.
We continue to work on loading of the brush, the pallet management and the control of the amount of water in the brush for the desired stroke. We work on straight steady strokes of the daffodil leaves. the landing and the lifting of the brush and the proper amount of pressure to make the leaves, flower bud and the flower peddles. We employee the outline option to help with our strokes. It is an acquired skill and your students are following nicely.
Spending this hour with the girls are just heavenly for me. The entire hour passed in sweet fellowship and learning. I can't describe the peace and the serenity we feel when we paint. Thank you for blessings us with this delightful pursue of beauty.
