11:11 pm - Is it hard to paint? You sure?

Why people think that only some extraordinary talented artists have the ability and right to paint? What is the need for such a barrier before so pleasant, bright and joyful pastime? There are a lot of wonderful and speedy methods of study painting in the world which can open the creation basis in every person just in 2 or 3 hours. And today I’d like to introduce the method elaborated by Russian painter Maxim Parnakh and developed for the adult people by Russian painter Andrey Shcherbakov which is called Wu Xing painting (“wu xing” in Chinese means “5 movements”). This method consists only in 5 brushstrokes which express 5 basic energies of Yin and Yang transformation: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. You can read more about this technique following this link: http://usinart.ru/englis/ . It is not a rigorous drawing of frozen objects but it is a free and open manner of expressing mood, feelings and emotions using brush, hand, body and mind resources. And I’d like to share the results of 2.5 hours open class of Wu Xing painting which took place this week in Moscow in the yoga club Aquarian (www.aquarianyoga.ru). It was a class for the very beginners who used the brush only in their childhood many years ago. They wanted to try something new which is unlike their usual office job and research another side of their personality. We painted very positive composition inspired by the paintings of great Chinese artist and philosopher Qi Baishi. And here you can see their first drawings: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.145177862274650.27830.100003473126633&type=3&l=9d74b602e0

So, don’t be afraid to make your dreams come true! It’s time to start! Good luck!
