Longevity Peach by TranquilitySurreil Longevity Peach by TranquilitySurreil
Peach is a Chinese symbol for longevity. :) Enjoy.

My first few attempts at Chinese Painting. I only started last year :blush: If watercolour painting is considered a more difficult medium to handle, chinese painting is certainly 10 times harder partly because chinese paper is really thin and susceptible to very serious smudges & you have to learn to hold the brush very upright with good control. I had to redo a lot of times before I could get it right.

That's the beauty of Chinese Art ^^ So different. More delicate.

I have misunderstood the process behind Chinese painting, so I should apologise. I can only imagine that acrylics on thin paper would cause it to ripple and be a nuisance to direct. So I will still tip my hat to you.

Haha, it's okay, I sure wouldn't mind, not at all XD But the acrylics are mixed so they're a bit watery, which brings the tendency to smudge, Thank you :hug:

Thin paper for water colour paint must require the hand of true patience. I imagine you have that steadiness. Water colour paint is a tricky medium to master, so your success in this image will be a triumph of mind over matter, or paint over paper.
