Tested some new brushes and painted Phoenix, the mythical bird that in West symbolizes renewal and immortality, and in China the feminine principle.


  1. Sasa, all I can say is that you are a Master,
    because only someone who dominates the brushes can show something like this, with loose brush strokes and some stains, a perfect phoenix!!!!
    And now I learned what it means in China.
    and I realize that your illustration is the exact representation of that meaning!
    Congratulations my friend Sasa!!!!

  2. Sasa,if that is a doodle, I'm a duck.
    It is splendid!

  3. I like it. And I like the paper you used. What kind is it?

  4. love it! test more brushes please :)

  5. Thanks all, I'm blushing :-)
    The paper is rice paper (or xuan paper), I think it usually made of bamboo or other plants, no necessarily rice.

  6. What movement and strength in this painting! Very nice to see how you have used different sizes of brushes. The very big ones for the heavy waving tale and the tiny one for the legs. Super!
