Spring basket – painting tips

Paint the orchid shoots first in bright spring greens.

Then paint in the basket and handle in very dry black ink, leaving spaces for the branches and plum blossoms.

The branches should be painted in a very wet dark grey leaving space for the plum blossoms to be painted in black ink outline style.

Textures and nodes can be added to the branches as they dry.

Add shades of light/dark red (crimson) to blossoms.

Complete painting with your calligraphy and seal.
