My work

About

I live in Nidderdale and paint as a hobby. I am a member of Pateley Bridge Art Club and the Yorkshire group of the Chinese Brush Painters’ Society. I attend demonstrations and workshops in Glasshouses and Pool in Wharfedale. I have tried many art media and now mainly paint traditional chinese style paintings on chinese papers using brushed black ink and watercolours. I like freestyle painting (Xie Yi) . The free flowing brushed ink or colours on unsized paper is quite difficult to judge and control, resulting in variability in form that is suited to variable natural forms. The meticulous style (ghonbi) on thin sized chinese paper is safer but requires methodical work. The results are more defined and can be stunning. There are also semi-sized papers made from bark or mulberry fibres and gold or silver flecked papers, to create different effects.
