In amongst a rather crazy week I have had the splendid privilege of going to Traditional Chinese Painting classes with An Ni, a wonderful, insightful teacher who has turned all my painting habits on their head. I have not had a quiet mind this week and my stubborn reluctance to be taught anything by anyone else has been tempered by a truly amazing teacher. It is a pity that the classes finish today as I feel I have had a small taste of something which has altered my perspective on how I work. Will do another post next week on the beautiful brushes, paper, ink and pigments that we have been working with.
