    about this gallery...

    Meticulous painting is done on meticulous paper or on silk. Both the paper, and the silk  will have  been thoroughly sized. The painting is done very carefully and in a strict order. A sketch, done from life, must be traced onto the silk or meticulous paper using a fine brush to produce a clear, wire-like ink line.

    Washes of ink, and or indigo, build up the image until it is looking three dimentional.

    A final wash of colour finishes the picture.

    Emperor Hui Zong in the Song dynasty painted beatiful pictures in this way.
