    about this gallery...

    Paintings on silk are usually done in the ‘meticulous style’.

    This is a method that reached its height in the Song Dynasty in China. Careful fine lines describe the subject and then fine washes of ink, indigo and or colour produce the tonal quality in the picture. A final wash of colour finishes the effect. Freestyle painting on silk is more rare but can be effective too.
