I made the switch from oils to oriental brush painting style when I was taking martial arts. My teacher was Chinese and he advised me to try this style of art so I did. Fell in love with it and this is my only style of art that I paint now. I was able to find a great Master teacher Mr. Henry Wo yue-kee that lived in my area.
I paint in the Lingnan style and find the loose style of brush strokes very challenging. I must say, I love the challenge can you share any tips? Work hard, paint everyday, and relax when you paint. Enjoy the journey.
