chinapete, so happy so see a new one and quite a stunning study... I really love the pencil and wet in wet technique of the colors... excellent!

Oh, I love this ChinaPete.
Have you worked with the art brushes in the stamp and sticker section?
I want to play around with those to see if I can get the chinese brush strokes style.

Fantastic, ChinaPete.

Love the ghost images and the flow of the wash. Very nicely controlled in a spontaneous way. Love the colors as well.

Thanks, everyone, for the enthusiastic comments ... The majority of the work, after the color washes have been set down, is done on the iPhone using the basic AR tool set, mostly crayon or oil brush ...

chinapete...oh yeah!....very beautiful with great colors and beautiful simple curves creating a complex shape with slight touches for texturing...I don't know if this has always been in there since your early work was much darker these seem filled with light..:cool::cool:

Gary, thanks ... Right now my style seems to be somewhere between classical Chinese painting and the watercolor still lifes of Charles Demuth :)
