November Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. – Ralph Waldo Emerson This month we travel east to Japan and other worldly places to paint (even if it’s just in our imagination). Here the symbolic, quirky, flat and dreamy illustrative style of Japanese art will inspire and motivate new ways of seeing and creating. When we learn to see how other parts of the world take in their surroundings and express them through paint, we learn so much not only as artists but also as humans. Do a Web search on Japanese artists or Japanese art and look through images until you find some that speak to you. Print several of them out to use as references. Take your time with this and choose some that you will be inspired to paint
