yes, a peacock. In a driveway!
Amazing! I had to stop and get out of my car, take some photos.
My teacher Bill said he had never gotten THAT as an excuse for being late before!

In class, Bill demonstrated the Big Gesture with Sumi-E brush.
Here is his demo piece below - it is a Zen idea of spontaneity in painting.
I hope to have a short video of his demo to share with you soon.
After Bill demoed, we all took turns trying this ourselves . . .
Lynn - wow!

don't those look delicious?
Bill is continuing to teach us about color and line and water media.

Below is what I painted after listening hard to what Bill had been teaching us about not over-working the water media into the paper -let it flow and react to it instead of trying to fix it.
I am pleased!

The best way out of a problem is through it.
