The first Sumi-e class was learning how to create a Bamboo, then the second part was to learn how to paint Cherry blossom, and this time we incorporated color.

We created three different drawings of the Cherry Flowers and branches

It is an interesting exercise to free your mind, I can see how I can incorporated the style of Sumi-e in future fabrics designs.

I will continue to learn Sumi-e a very beautiful technique and also a very introspective one, you need to be very present and you have to create in that moment.
