Renhai Reflections 70: The Art of Painting


[Here is a solo Renhai that Janice wrote a few days ago. It was inspired by a Renhai that we were working on together (to be posted in a few days). Thank you Janice for contributing to our Renhai Reflections project.]


The Art of Painting
A Renhai by Janice Thomson (Solo)

Part of a tail
tints the drawing table —
painting ravens.

The twelve shades of black ink —
my brush finds the coffee cup.

Multiple strokes —
in the mirror, my face
a painting too.

I've fallen behind with my blog reading and commenting. Good to be back here catching up. Apologies if less comments than usual.

This is great - a real eye to the details of painting. I've been trying to learn to draw recently, and it really does focus your vision in a new way. I especially like part 1.
