What you'll do
Artsy 2019 anyone? Nihonga (日本画) or Japanese-style painting refers to painting that originated in Japan, involving the use of traditional Japanese materials and color pigments in its compositions. You will learn how to create your own Nihonga painting, a Japanese pigment painting that is completely different from "sumi-e" ink painting or other medium. First, you’ll work on a rough sketch that will eventually become a painting. (Hint: travel is a great source of inspiration!) Next, choose your canvas: either thick Japanese paper or a paper fan. Then, trace your sketch using sumi (black ink). It can be tricky for you, but it’s also super fun! After outlining your sketch with sumi-ink, you’ll color your work with all-natural mineral pigments , adding a subtle vibrancy to your painting. ※Mineral pigments mixing FISH glue with your finger. The sessions are semi-private, small group in my art studio, and special attention will be paid to your work. it would make a great gift for yourself, friends and loved ones! https://youtu.be/6AkW0n8y2bY My studio location. Walking from Shibuya station(about 15mins), and Omotesando station(5mins)
