Pauline Bull hosted the Chinese Painting Workshop today. Watching her paint the flowers and bamboo - it just seemed so easy. Her brush would just run away on the rice paper and produce the most delicate flowers and bamboo.
But is it easy ? I am sure the participants in todays workshop will agree that it takes a lot of practise to produce the results Pauline has.
