Learn along the way

Strokes of inspiration in Lijiang
I have not been practising chinese calligraphy since I graduated more than 10 years ago. When i walked past the art studio in Lijiang, a strange feeling took over me and made me want to pick up the brush and ink again.

So for the next three afternoons while i stayed there, from 2 to 6pm, I came here to brush up my caligraphic skills.

I wouldn't say it was a perfect work but i felt good about doing it. On my way back home I bought a huge chinese brush and rice paper. Suddenly i was like a student starting all over again, feeling exhilarated and confident.

Practice makes perfect. Nothing beats doing it than saying it.

Picking up the brush and ink again... in Lijiang.
