One Stroke Snake


(Direct Link to YouTube) It's amazing what you can produce with one stroke of the watercolor brush. Happy Year of the Snake.

This artist seems to be Japanese by the look of the characters on the newspaper.

I really like the tv series of Dinotopia. I wish I could have learned more about them in school. They did not have a classes to study them. I would like to be able to be in one of them. That would so incredbile to be in. To study dinosaurs would so neat. But all of this cost a lot of money. Wish i could be in one of them. Thanks Harold G. Reed

Amazing brush stroke! Thanks for sharing!

That's very impressive! I love how the staccato rhythm of the stroke creates that snake skin texture.

P.S On my computer, this video has also replaced the early 20th century street footage a few posts down. I'm not tech savvy so I'm not sure if it's that way for anyone else?

Nick, that's funny that you mentioned the Wrong Video problem. On the Brangwyn post, one of my computers shows the right video, and the other shows another video by the same producer. I'm using the embed code that YouTube gives me, and I have no idea why it's misdirecting. Any computer geniuses in the house?

Not a computer genius, but now I know I have the wrong brush. I just need to go out a buy a snake brush.

I actually own a similar piece I picked up in Japan, though it's of a dragon, not a snake, and has rather more than one stroke as they embellished the details and frills around the body. Still a pretty cool technique.
