Chinese paper is usually made in very large sheets which can be cut down into smaller sizes as needed. This series of landscape paintings are only 6 3/4 by 8 3/4 inches. Most of them overlap with the “Old Friends” series.
Paintings that copy the work of artists long gone, in order to learn their brushwork. By following their energy they seem closer in spirit.
A series of paintings in ink and color on thin paper with embedded fiber, rough edges, and occasional holes that simulates the look of antique paintings on silk.
Most painters of Chinese-style landscapes began by copying from the Ming dynasty “Mustard Seed Garden Manual of Painting.” I’ve taken the original black and white woodblock illustrations, colorized them, and added a few modern touches of my own.
