Sunday Class April 2017

We were at the work of Fu Boashi (1904-1965). He studied in Japan at  the Tokyo School of Fine Arts in 1933 and brought Japanese visual elements to the Chinese ink painting tradition. He has a very distinctive style and makes excellent us of both sides of the paper.

We worked on Shining Star Premium Xuan from Sidewinder studio and a achieved some very good results. The paper is similar to double Xuan and is fun to work with.
