How To: Paint Carnation flowers in the Chinese brush style

Paint Carnation flowers in the Chinese brush style

In a special Mother's Day installment of their weekly instructional series on Chinese painting, Blue Heron Art's Henry teaches us to paint Chinese Carnations in watercolor, with calligraphy highlights done in ink with a brush. His grace and accuracy with both the watercolor and the ink would be challenging for many of the less-artistically-inclined to emulate, but the finished product is beautiful and should impress all but the choosiest of moms if their child were to make / buy it for them.

Medium:
Marie's Chinese Watercolors (Rose, Rouge, Carmine, Mineral Green, Yellow, Vermilion), bottled sumi Ink
Combination brush, Triple Xuan rice paper
