Chinese Brush Painting: Willow
Thursday, March 7, 2013, 9am
AB Dow Classes
Willow trees are a common subject in Chinese painting. The weeping willow is a native of China and was not
introduced into the Western world until the 15th century. The tree’s association with life, death and rebirth
stretches back into ancient times. It was used most likely because of its swift-growing habit; a cut willow tree can re-grow quickly. A willow tree shows its beauty differently in all four seasons. Every detail for drawing
this elegant looking tree, along with birds in spontaneous style, will be introduced in this session.
This class is for both beginning and intermediate students who would like to learn this enjoyable oriental watercolor technique. Step by step, you will complete your artwork with Chinese calligraphy and seals. The traditional wet mounting will also be taught. Tools are available for purchase from the instructor.
