Lesson 8010 features the tropical beauty of the flower Bird of Paradise. Although the subject demonstrates basic stroke techniques of Chinese brush painting, it's not a flower that you'll find many masters paint. Perhaps, because it's not native to China. Nonetheless, Ning walks through a uniques technique of color loading to the brush to produce multi-color variation in a single stroke. This lesson shares two separate compositions one for the right-handed artist, the other for the left. Have fun!
