In this lesson, we were learning brush strokes to paint bamboo. I like to learn as many different brush techniques as I can. Each Chinese Brush Art teacher has a unique way of teaching and I like that. Variety is good. A lot of variety is even better. I have been fortunate to have some very good teachers. I have particularly enjoyed my time with Hsi-mei. She has been a very positive influence in my learning process. She has helped me grow as an artist through her patience and encouragement. Thank you, Hsi-mei.
