The 2018 CBPS AGM was a great success! Knuston Hall gave us a warm welcome and plenty of good food. The AGM business was conducted with good humour, and Louisa Yuen brought lots of interesting papers, brushes and books.
The three workshops from CBPS member teachers were excellent!
Kaili Fu captured the spirit of the lotus in literati style on xuan, with a hovering dragonfly.
Maggie Cross was inspired by an African safari with Jane Dwight to paint dramatic leopards and lions on mulberry paper.
Her innovative use of a large hake brush to model the body or form the lion’s mane really inspired us to be bold!
Dr Xuzhuang Li shared three new phrases with his unique step-by-step guide to running script. He explained the different calligraphy scripts – the photo shows the seal script for “dragon” – and the characteristic strokes for running script.
