The following is the description of the video.
[5 Minutes Painting]
This video introduces the painting technique that anyone can practice and create a beautiful piece of art. It would be better to paint vigorously rather than being afraid of mistakes.
The paper used in the video is Gasenshi, Chinese origin calligraphy and painting paper.
You can also use a square fancy cardboard or drawing paper, but thin and glossy is unsuitable.
Washi (Japanese paper), gasenshi, Mino-washi, and karakami (toushi) (Chinese origin paper which contains bamboo fiber) are recommended.
Acrylic or watercolors are fine.
The paint used in the video is the paints for Japanese-style painting.
– Sumi (Black Ink)
China ink or if you don’t have it, thin down black acrylic paint or watercolor with water.
I’ll be perfect if you have small, regular, big and flat brush.
The instructor uses saishiki-fude (Japanese round brush), mensou-fude (small round brush), honegaki-fude (big round brush), and hira-fude (flat brush).
