"The stark naked beauty of winter branches are bursting with new life symbolize hope and potential."
While there are many lessons in Asian Brush Painting there are four classics of flower painting in the tradition of Chinese Brush that carry a lot of weight, with valuable instruction in brushwork to represent various plant groups. Traditionally known as the 'Four Gentleman,' this series will take a closer look at these four floral classics: Plum Blossoms, Orchids, Bamboo and Chrysanthemum. Representing the four seasons and classes of plants, in each of four lessons we will learn the brush strokes that go into that particular subject. These brush strokes can be applied to many other subjects, plant, animal or landscape. These four brush painting classes we are offering at the Botanical Garden are introductory and suitable for a beginner.
