A few years ago I started playing around with Chinese Brush Strokes. Ingenious were the ancient people who created and perfected this minimalist art form.
The key to doing this seems to be in holding the brush perpendicular to the paper. Birds seem to be the easiest images for me to do. Here are a few I’ve done. The really bad ones go into the trash.
These were done in watercolour except the heron, which was done in india ink.
