#Inktober2016 Day 1

For today, I’m getting a feel for the Chinese paint brushes again. I’ve not done this in even longer than watercolor landscapes. I was a teen when Dad taught me how to do Chinese painting, so it’s been almost 40 years.

I still remember how to pick up ink so that the bamboo segments have a gradation, giving them a more 3D look but I’m seriously rusty.

The Doodle Day prompt is fall and the Inktober prompt is fast, so I tried to paint a mouse with falling leaves.
