…renowned Canadian artist, taught his unique style of contemporary Chinese Brush painting in the studio yesterday to 15 appreciative students!
Danny began by demonstrating how to create a magnificent Snowy Egret!
Time for the students to begin…..
Danny’s wife Hilda was a tremendous help, explaining Danny’s technique and offering suggestions….
Where to begin…..
Hilda coming to the rescue …
Kathy Wong graciously brought some of the art work she had completed in Danny’s Canadian workshops. It was Kathy who originally suggested I host Danny in the studio.
We’ve got some serious concentration going on here….
Hilda is holding a completed, mounted Egret painting as Danny assures the class they will accomplish the same by the end of the workshop! I’m delighted to tell you that’s exactly what happened as I saw so many beautiful paintings …it was inspiring!
This will be Thursday’s subject…Shore Birds!!!
Everyone decided on a pot luck feast and dear Clara made a scrumptious flourless chocolate cake….what a yummy!
Kathy’s assembling her award winning Chinese Chicken salad…with home made wontons that are incredible and toasted sesame seeds……what a treat!!! Special thanks to Kaley, Kathy’s amazing daughter who sent along her special chocolate cookies…what a treat!!!
