    C/U top shot of a Chinese writing on a long white paper laid on the table. C/U shot of a hand getting the paint (looks more like ink) ready. There are two little dishes with black paint and a paint brush. "In place of paint we have gouache and Chinese ink..." Cut to M/S of a man painting. Hanging on the wall behind him there are several Chinese style paintings (or writings?!).

    The man is English painter Peter Thompson and the technique used is modified Chinese "free brush" style. He works on horizontal surface and it takes him only several minutes to complete a painting. His work was exhibited at St. George's Gallery in London.

    M/S of a woman wearing a blue beret, looking at Mr Thompson's paintings hanging on the gallery wall. C/U shot of the woman's face as she studies the pictures. C/U shot of one of the exhibits, picture of pair of bicycles, is followed by the picture of a funny landscape.
