Cool Blackberries ~ Challenge project

So  I accepted a new Challenge from my favorite china painting forum, as have many others , so a bit of a social experiment as well.

Part of the idea is Sharing.   So with that in mind,  I have a study that was shared with another favorite painting group by ‘ Tony A’ , a blackberry study I really liked by Shelly Fairres  ,  inspired by a Jeanne Stewart water color.  ( i will have to look up the original )

I have painted blackberries and raspberries before ,  one of my favorites was testing some new paints, cool colors and building on them in different shades and washes.    I will start my idea from the Lesson study shared,  and try to see If i can get the cool tones and shading I did on my desert bowl , ( which I use often 😉  .

If you have never been  is a WONDERFUL place to learn all about China painting.




my first piece I did on my own. after a 5 year hiatis from learning china painting. about my 6th piece china painting.


These are Cherries, but I can do the same rich color in Berries
