All of Kaplan's subject matter is directly from nature. She will either sketch on location or bring the subject into her studio. Nature is her best instructor. She does not paint from photographs or copy other artist work.
Kaplan's Oriental Brush paintings are all originals, no Giclees, prints, or copies of any kind. All are on acid free hand made rice paper. The colors are made from ground minerals and mixed with peach tree sap as the binder. Colors are permenant once dried. She grinds her own ink from a premimum ink stick into a stone. Bottle ink is not used in her art. The ink and colors soak into the paper producing a soft serene look and feel. She paint in the Lingnan style.
All Kaplan's paintings are wet mounted using hand made glue from wheat flour. Each piece of art is ready for you to mat and frame.
