Chinese Brush Painting Practice

I am learning to think more like the Chinse Artists in their practice of painting.
In traditional watercolor, the object is to try to paint a close representation of the subject.
The Chinese attempt feel what their subject is feeling and paint with that emotion, more spontanious and free.
This was my result of "letting go" and being spontanious.
Joni, trust me, my chickadees will get rounder and fluffier. The shape of this one is more like a robbin!

The Deer Pair

This is the newest painting that I have been working on.  It is a pair from a wildlife refuge in Alaska. I am pretty sure they are Mule Deer.
