SHUI MO: CHINESE PAINTING WORKSHOP AT YUCHENGCO MUSEUM

Monday, April 28, 2014

Traditional Chinese brush painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world, showcasing the harmony between man and nature. Shui Mo (water and ink) is a freestyle technique created using a brush dipped in ink and water and onto rice paper.



Practicing Shui Mo expresses one's creativity and artistry, calms the mind, and gives a better appreciation for the beauty of art and nature.
