Chinese brush with Watercolour, Hills Road Adult Ed.14.11.16

Chinese brushes offer a hugely versatile tool for the water-colourist, it can be loaded with wash colours and applied in a range of marks from broad sweeping strokes to scumbling dry brushing techniques. The brush tip offers a delicate fine tip and intimate and delicate lines can be created. Here are a few paintings from our experiments with Chinese brushes.

Many thanks to Martin, Dom, Geoffrey, Catherine, Elena, Lucy, Jacqui, Marion, Riki, Jara for these lovely paintings.
