Sumi-E traditional Chinese Brush Painting was what created this delicate branch of plum blossoms, a traditional Chinese painting subject. Sumi-e is a painting style as original as it's name. It uses brushes specific to it's style and others do not make the strokes necessary for the art. It is a wonderful and meditative art style.
The plum blossom is a wonderfully beautiful plant to paint, full of intricate turns and twists of branch and stem, with full color filled petals to work more rounded strokes on. It is a great way to practice many forms of brushwork and watch a fantastically flowered piece come from all your work.
