After I did my previous exercise (posted here), I had a cup of coffee and jumped in and did this one right away. It is not meant to be a work of art, just a quick study on paper. I tried to keep going with the fresh color and juicy strokes of the preceding exercise. Source photo and normal size photo is below.
In China, some centuries ago, lived T’ao Ch’ien, who wrote this poem:
To build a house in the world of man And not hear the noise of horse and carriage, How can this be done? - When the mind is detached, the place is quiet. I gather Chrysanthemums under the eastern hedgerow And silently gaze at the southern mountains. The mountain air is beautiful in the sunset, And the birds flocking together return home. In all these there is a real meaning, Yet when I want to express it, I become lost in no words. Quoted in Creativity and Taoism, by Chung-Yuan Chang
