Chinese brush painting consists of many painting techniques that add to the beauty of the artwork. In our first two painting demonstrations, I showed you how to add “magic dots” to provide a sense of realism and randomness like what is found in nature.
Today’s art tip is how to do textures and washes!
I’ll show you how to add a sense of atmosphere and other elements of realism with these two painting techniques. I’ll use the same landscape painting from Part II as our starting point, so you can see how a landscape painting develops! It is a lot of fun to see a painting come to life. I hope you enjoy this demo!
