What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in learning how to paint with watercolors on rice-paper. I have been teaching this spontaneous style of brush painting for 10+ years based on Chinese Spontaneous style techniques and innovative techniques I have developed. I have introduced this artform to 300+ adults who have never painted before and to many artists! Western watercolors, acrylic and oil painters have found that this art form has helped free up their painting, improved their skills in water control and in expressing the essence of a subject. All skills levels are welcome. This style of painting is soothing, relaxing and therapeutic.
