Out of the 5 classes I am taking here, one of them is Creativity and Chinese Painting, I really wanted to take ceramics but I wasn't allowed to, so I decided to take this class instead. I know I'm supposed to be majoring in business and everything but I also want to try things here that I won't have an opportunity to try elsewhere. I am so excited for this class. I've done a bit of calligraphy when I was small but Chinese painting is something new to me. Today I went to buy the supplies for class. Some of this stuff was actually quite expensive. I had to get 3 different types of brushes. The most expensive one was HKD$170. I can't remember but I think the tip was made of rabbit fur. Point is, even amongst brushes, there are so many types and sizes. That's just one row of the many brushes that I saw today. Below are my art supplies. The white tube holds rice paper. The bamboo roll that looks like a sushi roller is used to hold the brushes. The white package is a goat fur blanket used to soak up ink. The black box is this fancy Japanese imported ink that's supposed to be easier to use. There's a flower palette and more colored inks. The last 3 are different types of calligraphy brushes.
