Crystalline Clouds

Crystalline Clouds by Virginia Lloyd-Davies
Look what I found while looking for images of chinese clouds to inspire one of my silk paintings! This incredibly beautiful painting by Virginia Lloyd-Davies is done in a technique called Po Mo.

Po Mo, translated from Chinese, means poured or splashed ink.  It was developed in the Tang dynasty in the 7th century. Virginia has brought the technique up to date with her vibrant color. She also does more traditional Chinese brush work that is absolutely exquisite!
