Have you ever been curious about Ancient Asian style artwork? Are you fascinated by its style, how clean, and how simple it looks? Have you ever thought about trying it out for yourself, perhaps adding your own artistic spin to its form? It’s very easy to do and with My Craft Academy’s aid, a vast world of ink-driven exploration awaits your creative input.
Follow artist Karen LeQuia as she introduces herself, her techniques, goes into background of sumi-e painting, and guides you as you master creation of your own sumi-e activities. Learn helpful insights on taking a traditional approach versus an untraditional one, proper ink and brush usage, adapting movement (like breathing or stance) to enhance brushstroke technique, wet mounting your projects after they are painted, and fully embracing your inspirations to paint exactly what you desire.
