This two-hour adult workshop focusing on mountain and water painting, a bold style of Asian brushwork utilizing delicate ink gradients to create paintings inspired by the beauty of the natural world.
When asked what participants can expect to do in this workshop, Taylor states, “Arising in Asian antiquity, mountain and water painting has challenged artists for thousands of years. With little more than a brush, ink and a sheet of paper you can create spontaneous landscapes that come alive on the paper. In this workshop, we will complete a short survey of mountain and water painting to ground our discussion and exploration of this technique. Although mountain and water painting can take a life time to master, the tools and techniques are accessible to any level artist. We will learn to embrace our happy accidents, conquer our fear of a blank sheet of paper and bring our imaginations alive with ink.”
The majority of workshop time will be spent putting brush to paper. All students will have the opportunity to create several paintings that will help the techniques sink in and go home with plenty of materials to continue their adventures in mountain and water painting. The class investment includes a beginner painting supply kit, over $25 in value, including 100 pages of rice paper, brush, ink and workspace felt pad.
