watching zhaoming wu work is one of the most hypnotic experiences. the artist spends much of his time seeing his subject. then he stands back and makes a mark. a few carefully placed lines later and his blank page contains a beautifully-formed human figure. i was excited to discover that this process has been captured on dvd! i will watch it and remember his patient, yet emphatic advice to me—MORE CONTRAST! patience and contrast—two invaluable lessons that i was fortunate to learn from the great zhaoming wu.
here are my favorite colors.
