Last summer, I enrolled in a chinese
painting class taught by Mr. Caesar Chen
. My purpose was basically to discipline my hand and have a more fluid and simple composition. In this class, I learned about the four gentlemen in Chinese painting, notably plums, orchids and the bamboo. There is still a lot to be desired but these are some of the products of that class.
This is my first try to paint on a round canvas. It was a lot of fun but it did have its unique challenge, especially when painting the edges. This is also the one where I thought of incorporating the well defined hand(s) in my succeeding paintings.

I am particularly proud of this one. I have incorporated a detailed face of a woman. Something I have not been doing before. I have always been more at ease with drawing male faces, if ever I did faces. Too bad I took the picture with my ipad on poor lighting. It is much more beautiful in the original than this one.
