This wonderfully simple Fine Line lesson depicts a dreaming pig. The lesson was created to celebrate 2019, the Year of the Pig for the Lunar New Year.
OAS' Gong bi lessons have earned universal praise for being sufficiently detailed and easy to follow.
If you are brand new to Gong bi or Fineline painting, our Gong Bi Set has all the materials needed to complete this lesson plus another lesson included in the set.
This easy to follow lesson has 11 pages of instruction.
The lesson begins with a Materials list and breakdown of materials care and color preparation. It then discusses line work and tips for line work technique and shortcuts for rendering line work for beginners. The lesson then goes into a breakdown of each wash step for filling in the color of the composition. It discusses basic technique for washing and goes over each stage of wash broken down by color and area that the wash is applied.
The style and method of doing Gong bi for Fineline Painting outlined in this lesson is unique to OAS and make completing simpler works possible in a single sitting. Many of our students find this more satisfying rather than the more traditional way of having to wait for color layers to dry extending the painting process over multiple days.
