Sumi Experiments

5 Apr

There’s often an experiment happening in Judy’s studio. A new tool, technique or medium. Her latest addition in the studio is the Sumi Brush. It’s a giant paint brush, originally used in China and Japan for calligraphy, but it can be used in painting to make one-of-a-kind lines.

Judy’s Sumi Brush

Judy found this guy’s videos: Bill Buchman. He’s using the Sumi brushes in inventive ways, and offers his own line of brushes at www.sumibrushes.com. A few YouTube videos in, and Judy was inspired to try one out for herself.

Ever since, I’ve seen her shake it up with her paintings, as she allows her art to wander with this cool new tool. Check out these studio shots what’s in progress. It will be fun watching these develop.
