    @Maplepaw1 Thank …
    @Maplepaw1 Thank you for watching my YouTube channel! To answer your question on how I have a steady hand, I have to say that I don’t have a steady hand like you might think I have, so when I draw details or a calligraphic stroke I have to mobilize my whole body from my feet, which are always leveled on the ground when I paint, to my shoulder and arm, all the way to the finger tips, and adjust my breath so I can devote all my energy into the brush strokes. Shaking hand is OK or even better.(:

  12. Maplepaw1 says:

    I have always …
    I have always admired your paintings! The details and brush strokes are very nice! Question, how do you have such a steady hand?

    @chickenchan2001 Thanks for asking. Just add it into the water(about 10% depending your needs) and use the glue water instead of water to mix with watercolors or ink.

    I love watching this, or stuff like this. It’s relaxing and it’s an awesome art to learn.

  24. blueheronarts says:

    @kenthenoob Yes, I …
    @kenthenoob Yes, I learned from master pieces first and from observation of nature second. Ancient art works or works by master artists are second nature to observe and after learning from them it become my second nature. If your reference is set high you might get to the middle level; if your reference is set to the middle you might only reach lower levels. So having great references is the key in learning art. After you mastered them then you know how to observe and establish your own style.

    i love your work. do you use reference at all, or is it all from long-term observation?
