This video is meeesssmerizing; I happened to have run into it online a few months back myself. I think I've watched it multiple times! Thanks for sharing.
Yes thank you for sharing! I loved watching her most of all - she is so calm and I love when she takes her glasses off at the end and smiles! To be that calm when painting and not having a running list of thoughts throughout your mind is a great place to be, ie totally in the flow (like Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - I loved this book btw and reminded me of this state which is also described by Zhuang Zi).
Tech + fear:
She applies paint to the back, yes - you can do this with silk. I also love silk painting and silk as a medium in general
Chinese painting is notable for the size sometimes being applied AFTER the painting is finished - not in this silk painting as is quite fine, but in some other kinds of ink painting - I have never got into this as quite scary and can literally ruin your work. Is to do with the framing process, glue on the back for scroll hanging etc. I like the miniature painting way of sizing first and getting over and done with.
On that note, the jadval border lines - apparently they were not only done after the miniature was finished, but also completed before - so like me they were also apprehensive about it and would rather 'get it over and done with' perhaps too
Don't be scared of the jadval lines though, that is not very good of a teacher to pass on the fear to students!
However having just watched the latest Star Trek series Picard on Prime the word jadval sounded a bit like Zhat Vash in my mind and, you know, they are scary
