Chinese brush painting is a difficult discipline.
For a skilled Chinese brush painter, the brush just touches the paper, and the strokes make beautiful pictures.
For someone unfamiliar with it, you start working on the art piece in a different way.
You hold the brush in a different way, and you make brushstrokes in a different way than you are used to doing.
Today I made 16 attempts of the hundreds of brushstrokes that I will need to render a credible leaf or blossom in this technique.
My process in this Art Every Day for the Month challenge is to push myself beyond what I know. So I experimented, I improvised and I tested.
And that's how I stretched myself today.
