Chinese brush painting (sumi-e), painted by myself in Brighton, UK
Life is a flower, increasing joy wherever one treasures it! Inspired by the peonies I buy from our local floral shop each year in Spring season. I painted this beauty for Brighton Artists Open House exhibition AOH2023.
This is an original Chinese painting, or sumi-e art in another word of sunflowers. Hand painted on double Xuan rice paper, with Chinese natural inks and mineral based colours, in contemporary style which the artist still use the traditional materials but a twist with Western oil painting techniques.
I have added some calligraphy writing in half cursive script which means the season, year.
Signed, dated and stamped with stone seals carved by myself. The two on the right bear my surname and first name. The one at bottom left means best wishes.
I hope this gives you as much joy as to me.
Painted in my home studio in Fiveways Brighton, Plum Blossom Ink Art.
