Goldfish worked on in Henry's class

We did 10 different subjects in Henry's classes.  This was done on the 4th day and was the 8th subject - goldfish.  This was one of my favorite classes.  He taught us how to paint the illusion of water which helps bring the fish to life.  

How wonderful to spend 25 hours with a Chinese Master and learn so much in such a brief period of time.

Henry Wo Yue -Ke

This past week I had the privilege of taking a chinese brush painting class sponsored by the Sumi-e Society. The teacher was the famous Henry Wo Yue-Kee. He has been painting for over 70 years. He paints like he breathes. Almost instinctual. His work is so incredibly beautiful. He was a wonderful teacher. I hope to finish some of the paintings we worked on this week. I need to get some new art work up.
