Raggedy Sparrow Practice 5 / Chinese Brush Painting Birds Animals Flowers

chinese painting brush With time on my hands I thought I would try Sparrows again.
These are not as short stroked as Yang O-shi’s appear to be. I can only guess, but for now, even being able to see the sparrow on the page before I paint something there is a feat I fight hard to get over.
Painting is not second nature to me though I am told it may be. It’s a beautiful pastime and the root of it all wold be nice to think that someone else in Europe saw my efforts and would like to try their hand as well.

Here are Five Sparrows, painted with traditional Chinese paints and paper, brushes and inks. All Chinese, even the mixing bowls are all authentic Chinese porcelain.
