Chinese Watercolor Painting Lessons / Workshops (Lingnan School Style)
Nowadays, many are rediscovering the beauty of traditional Chinese arts and the benefits attached in practising them. There is a telling Chinese saying: "Absorbed in painting, you know not old age is coming". Chinese painting is known to greatly benefit our mind and our body.
Chinese Watercolor painting classes are open to beginners as there is no previous training required. New and longtime students share the exciting voyage in the realm of Chinese arts under the guidance of Ngan Siu-Mui, a "Consummate artist who lives to teach others" (Killingbeck, The Chronicle).
Students learn how to use their wrist, elbow, forearm in order to move the Chinese brush energetically but always in control of it. Ngan Siu-Mui shows how to use Chinese ink, pigment and watercolor paper properly. Your painting will show lively movement, energetic strokes, and likeness to the subject. The end result is a well balanced composition.
