Paintings from our first course

Our first course (of 8 weeks) in painting finished recently and we got to mount some of our pieces at the last session. This was done with the traditional, ancient Chinese method using a wheat starch paste.

We were also given pen names for our painting, so we will be working on carving some seals with which to sign our paintings sometime soon. Alex was given the name Kin Shin Sai, roughly translating as progressing towards a golden heart. Aaron was given the name Ko Ishi An, meaning small stone hut.

Here are some pictures of our paintings:
