I went to my first Japanese painting lesson yesterday and it totally blew my mind.
The biggest two hour learning curve I've had for a very long time
After lots of practise with the paints and inks on soft paper I did one postcard (the postcard paper absorbed in a totally different way to the practise paper)...not good at all but represents something new and exciting to me ...this is the first time I have used a chopstick to draw!
I started out with a western mind but by the end of two hours I was beginning to get the idea behind it.
With my detailed work I'm sure this will be so good for me.
It has made me look at the world in a different way .
