The Art of Brushwork is comprised of three elements. The brush is a magician’s wand, and if handled correctly, can create a world out of thin air. The ink is the blood; it holds the possibility of Ch’I yun, or the living spirit of painting. And the paper is the skin, the texture that accepts the ink and absorbs the energy of the brush. It is the dance between these three, the brush, the ink and the paper guided by the hand and the heart that makes brushwork.
