Well, a good morning’s work from me, settling my nerves before the dentist. I have three fillings to be done and my TMJ (stress related jaw pain) has been flaring all week, so I’m not looking forward to it. I’ve been doing exercises in a different style of ink painting from my usual. Earlier this year I’ve been experimenting with Japanese style ink paintings, this morning I got out a gorgeous book on Chinese flower paintings.
And I’m rather pleased with the result:
It’s a very subtle kind of shading that may well suit the paintings for my new talk. A friend suggested the use of shadows and I really like the theme, so I’m exploring the use of gentle shading with inks. Have a good afternoon everyone, may see you tonight at the exhibition!
