Decided to do this #the100dayproject to get my head back into the art world.
So here goes day 001 – patience and endurance.
Lately I’m very into Chinese ink paintings, probably because I saw an amazing exhibition when I was in Hong Kong for Art Basel last month – and I relate to it, my ancestry root.
Somehow the emotions in Chinese ink paintings are very rich even though they’re very cleanly executed (I wanted to write “simple”, but that doesn’t sound right – as I know the techniques in Chinese ink paintings are immensely hard to learn). I love the painted words (poetry) and the romance in it (oh why did I refuse to learn Chinese when I was a kid, why).
This is my first try, watercolor – just a simple leaf with a tiny girl trying to reach for the nearest branch, and let’s see what became of it.
