Water buffalo is known as the Living Tractor of the East, as a family member of the farmers. Painting water buffalo is a nostalgic response to the industrialization and urbanization. This class is focused on the water buffaloes in the water. First, you will enjoy watching me doing a "mother, father and child" buffalo painting on a huge piece of Xuan paper; then, I will demonstrate how to paint this benevolent animal on smaller rice paper step by step in spontaneous style. Classroom activities including sharing information and images about water buffalo, discussion of water buffalo painting techniques by different masters. Assignment: create a poetic water buffalo painting with the theme of "hard working and true relaxation." This 2-hour video class including one large and six small demo painting processes.
