Creative Monday

Tried doing brush and ink portraiture of real people instead of animals.  It seemed more difficult as minor misplacement of the facial features can easily render the portrait untruthful of the person being drawn.  And it took much longer to draw people, more than twice the time I need to draw animal portraits, as I […]

Creative Monday

There was time to spare after I finished my chinese calligraphy homework, I attempted for the first time to do animal portraiture with a real calligraphy brush on chinese rice paper.  Feel really inadequate with my skill.  Think I’m much better off to stick with my faithful brush pen for now.
