Stickleback Under the Waterfalls

Stickleback Under the Waterfall

Hello Friends,

Here is the Stickleback fish below the waterfalls!  I had a lot of fun painting this.  I did it on Wednesday when my son took my daughter to school.  It is so great to get to stay home three days a week now.  This school year is not going to be quite as stressful for me with my son helping with the driving.  Although, now she is only going three days a week due to needing to drop a class which is fine.  So we get 4 day weekends now!  Yay!!

When I painted this I was using the book “Chinese Landscapes Made Easy” by Rebecca Yue.  My waterfall is similar to the one she shows in her example, but I did change it up some to make it mine.  I was working on using the dots and long dots strokes for the trees and the diagonal strokes for the rocks.  The fish is really too big proportionally as I said in my last post, but I don’t have the smallest size Chinese brushes yet, and I didn’t want to use my regular watercolor brushes.

I have ordered some other Chinese paint brushes that I hope to receive next week.  I should be getting this book today!  This is the book I mentioned in an earlier post that teaches how to do East Asian calligraphy, and I am very excited about it!  So hopefully in time you will see some of this, too, in future posts.

The Heart of the Brush by Kazuaki Tanahashi

So you will see me again when I get Derrick’s Stickleback fish done, which I am planning on working on right now!  In tribute to him I will say I am enjoying my Southern iced tea with fresh mint leaves as I paint!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂
