Note from the Artist: Today's prompt word is Ancient. So, I decided to go back to the roots of my drawing style. Chinese painting. I painted the character for the word Ancient in Chinese. It is the perfect example for what I try to achieve in my drawings and paintings. Less is more. Beautiful line work. Thick to thin. Chinese characters have been traced back about 6000 years. I'd say that's ancient.
