Chinese peonies

Today I had the privilege of attending a Chinese brush painting workshop. (Jack) Jiang Hongsheng is currently artist in residence in the library at work and offered a workshop to staff who were interested. Craftiness in work time! I leapt at it as you can imagine.

So this afternoon I spent two hours learning how to paint a peony in the Chinese style.

He was a good teacher and I was delighted at what I managed. I came last in art at school all those years ago…

Two Chinese Peonies

I have been really struggling with my mojo for making cards in the last couple of weeks so now I feel really inspired and invigorated! Thanks, Jack.
