Today I started painting again… It’s been a long time. I haven’t painted anything since the 2009 Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace poster. So my goal for 2012 is to set aside time for painting again. I’ve decided on Tuesday nights and tonight is the first Tuesday of 2012.
I have had this book, “Chinese Brush Painting Workstation”, for a long time as well. I decided a fun first project for Starting to Paint Again would be to go through this book and learn the techniques. Tonight I worked through a couple pages, mostly getting familiar with the ink and brushes, learning how to hold the brushes, and practicing a few brushstrokes.
