Autumn Dawn....Chinese Brush Painting.. by 

The end of autumn- there’s heavy frost and dew;

At dawn, I rise and go to the hidden valley.
Yellow leaves cover the stream and bridge,
In the empty village, just ancient trees.
Cold flowers are scattered, each alone,
The hidden stream breaks off, and reappears.
My own heart’s plans are long forgotten now,
What can it be that startles the deer
? Liu Zongyuan

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    The rough strokes and bleeding effect make it seem ancient, like something discovered in a cave. Very lovely and moody.

  • It is just that effect I was going for….thank you so much for your insightful comment Shani….

    Another wonderful piece that has such lovely elements…..the soft fade that let the mist rise up out of the trees…..the hard lines of sediment that could be rock or stone or maybe the path way to heaven.

  • Exactly so Elizabeth…just what I wanted to convert….thank you so much…
