The best place to be is here and now…
“Here and Now” is an original sumi-e dry brush painting using acrylic paints . It is on heavy stock, textured cream colored paper. Sumi-e is a ‘one stroke’ style of painting.
I am inspired by the elegance and simplicity of japanese ‘sumi-e’ and chinese ‘shui-mo hua’ paintings. This painting is from my ‘Beauty of Bamboo’ series.
I try to set my scanner to be as close as possible to the original color of the art piece. There is a slight color variation between the digital and the scanned original art.
