Grass Style Chinese Calligraphy 草書書法 & Free Download

chinese calligraphy Free Chinese Calligraphy Caoshu models for download
http://www.9610.com/wangxizhi/ (rubbings of the Calligrapher-Sage Wang Xizhi)
http://www.9610.com/Index1.htm (more samples by Chinese calligraphers)
http://www.art-virtue.com/styles/hsin/index.htm#3 (free dictionary of mixed Caoshu and Hsinshu)

Running Style (i.e., grass style, Caoshu, or Tsao Shu) is not for beginners’ Chinese calligraphy lessons or those who have not learned Mandarin Chinese since the complexities and confusions of Running Scripts are also very difficult for experienced and native Chinese calligraphers. The information in this video is only basics. http://www.art-virtue.com/styles/tsao/index.htm
Not only Caoshu scripts look differently from other Chinese calligraphy styles, but also a Caoshu script can be written differently between calligraphers or between periods of a calligrapher’s life.

To convert simplified Chinese characters to traditional Chinese characters (not 100% conversion for simplified characters such as 与, 种, 气, and etc.) to decipher the meanings of ancient Chinese calligraphy models.

To avoid mistakes and confusions, we cannot try to recognize Grass Scripts or study Chinese brush calligraphy based on simplified Chinese characters though some simplified Chinese characters were derived from certain Grass Scripts, or are equivalent, such as 与.

Due to the complexities and difficulties of 文言文 (classical Chinese) , I am not able to translate these calligraphy models to English or 白話文 (vernacular Chinese). For translations to 白話文, please obtain a copy from http://www.books.com.tw/exep/prod/china/chinafile.php?item=CN10076717

China Painting at CBC

chinese painting About 10 students expanded their knowledge of porcelain painting Tuesday during the Joe Barnhart Workshop Series at Coastal Bend College. Alzora Zaremba, instructor for the course, has been painting china for the past 30 years. While she is familiar with many art forms, her favorite is china. You can move things around, shove them around, wipe back through the paint, add more paint on top of paint, she said. It really is very forgiving — until you fire it in. At right, Mark Parsons uses a green paint to add leaves to the poppies he is painting on his porcelain platter.

“Centered Tip Principle” for Chinese Calligraphy writing

http://www.art-virtue.com/principles/p5-centertip.htm

Due to the tackiness and density of the gold pigment powder, I made a rare exception to the Center Tip Principle between 2:37 and 2:40. I overly pressed the brush’s bristle up to one half in consideration of the size of the brush and the ingredients of the gold powder. If the brush is pressed more than 1/2 or 2/3, the strokes will lose their vitalities.
