Award-winning Japanese Ink (sumi-e) artist and teacher, Junko Azukawa, will guide you through painting four traditional images that contain the basic strokes that every sumi-e artist masters: The Four Gentlemen.
The Four Gentlemen is a collective noun for four plants.
They represent the four seasons and originated in Chinese art in the 960s AD. Many neighbouring countries, including Japan, adopted the four gentlemen into their traditional art practises.
Beginner sumi-e artists focus on The Four Gentlemen because of their refined beauty, and the fundamental brushstrokes used to create them.
Over four weeks, you will learn how to paint:
- Plum blossom
During this practical course, Junko will also teach you how to:
- Grind Japanese ink using stone
- Mix different shades of ink
- Hold the brush
- Explore painting with an empty mind
