“Chinese painters use a traditional brush dipped into black ink, or colour on special paper or silk. Subjects include flowers, birds, animals, mountains and rivers. The painter aims to capture the life and spirit of the subject, making it live through the brush of the painter and the eyes of the viewer.”—Chinese Brush Painting Society.

The Hants, Dorset and Wilts Group is part of the national Chinese Brush Painters Society and meets four times a year. Our meetings are on a Saturday and are all day. We have national demonstrators/tutors who offer a theme for the workshop. The pictures on this page were painted by demonstrators at our workshops.
