Autumn Waters

Loquats by Claire Seaton (after Qi Baishi)

‌Greetings‌ ‌Chinese‌ ‌Brush‌ ‌Painters!‌ ‌

This‌ ‌October‌ ‌the‌ ‌theme‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌courses‌ ‌is‌ ‌‘Autumn‌ ‌Waters’.‌ ‌It‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌a‌ ‌celebration‌ ‌of‌ ‌Autumn,‌ ‌all‌ ‌things‌ ‌autumnal‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌final‌ ‌homage‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌Year‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌Pig.‌ ‌So‌ ‌get‌ ‌your‌ ‌oranges,‌ ‌reds,‌ ‌yellows‌ ‌and‌ ‌shades‌ ‌of‌ ‌brown‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌fore.‌

Both‌ ‌courses‌ ‌will‌ ‌include‌ ‌seasonal‌ ‌flowers‌ ‌and‌ ‌animals‌ ‌which‌ ‌are‌ ‌associated‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌Autumn‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌Chinese‌ ‌Year‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌Pig.‌ ‌We‌ ‌will‌ ‌paint‌ ‌two‌ ‌Autumn‌ ‌landscapes,‌ ‌one‌ ‌in‌ ‌each‌ ‌course.‌ ‌There‌ ‌will‌ be‌ ‌something‌ ‌for‌ ‌everyone.‌ ‌I‌ ‌have‌ ‌included‌ ‌some‌ ‌different‌ ‌techniques.‌ ‌Our‌ ‌evening‌ ‌entertainments‌ ‌will‌ ‌include‌ ‌a‌ ‌handy‌ ‌skill‌ for‌ ‌the‌ ‌festive‌ ‌season‌ ‌and‌ ‌a‌ ‌very‌ ‌interesting‌ ‌talk‌ ‌from‌ ‌Paul‌ ‌on‌ ‌the‌ Four‌ ‌Treasures‌ ‌as‌ ‌well‌ ‌as‌ ‌relevant‌ ‌DVDs.‌‌

‌If‌ ‌you‌ ‌have‌ ‌meticulous‌ ‌paper‌ ‌please‌ ‌bring‌ it‌ ‌along.‌ ‌I‌ ‌will‌ ‌have‌ ‌some‌ ‌for‌ ‌sale.
