Gold Pigment 金粉書法 Chinese Calligraphy on Cerulean & Red Xuan Paper

“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.

Some of the Chinese Painting techniques here may be very similar to Chinese Figure Paintings

http://www.youtube.com/user/artvirtue#g/c/D2E6554BA3978F71

and Chinese Calligraphy techniques, especially Seal Style and Cursive Styles. Due to time limitation, I did not record the full length of painting procedures. Many finishing touches are not recorded and included here since they are intuitive and self-explanatory.

國畫 Cricket Practice.Chinese Brush Painting & Calligraphy

chinese calligraphy Cricket Practice. Heh, Painting Crickets. his is simply a basic Chinese Self Practice session and I have added some old ones in for fun.
I find the paper / paint process difficuilt. The paper is so thin, so fragile when wetted. The brushes I findeither too soft or a bit too hard. It is all about getting the liquid into the paper.
Like carving but with water instead of a blade.
Maybe this is why Calligraphy is so associated with the martial art of swordsmanship because of the hand/wrist coordination involved.
