Exploring the Art of Sumi-e'
Judy Williams will discuss highlights of the history and development of the art of Sumi-e' and Eastern pictorial representation, particularly in China and Japan. She will talk about and illustrate how watercolor is utilized in modern oriental style paintings, and the difference between those paintings and traditional watercolor pictures. If time permits she will show a portion of a DVD which demonstrates how a modern painting of an Iris might be done while being faithful to the basic strokes and color mixing in the Oriental style.
