“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.

Chinese calligraphy 書法

chinese calligraphy Chinese Calligraphy ( 書法 ), pronounced as “shu fa”, is a high art practiced and esteemed throughout Chinese history and in many Asian countries.
Chinese calligraphy is the cornerstone of Chinese brush painting. If one has good foundation in Chinese calligraphy, s/he will master Chinese brush painting faster and easier than those who practice Chinese painting without a foundation in Chinese calligraphy. Many Chinese Painting techniques are derived from Chinese calligraphy strokes.

Chinese Calligraphy 中國書法 Scroll “Peace Love Joy (和平愛喜)”

chinese calligraphy Writing “Peace Love Joy” in cursive and semi-cursive Chinese Calligraphy for Katia from Russia during a Chinese music concert of Master Betty Zhang in McKinney Performing Arts Center in Texas. The writing was done on a pre-mounted blank scroll with printed dragons in light gold. Though the pre-mounted blank scroll can sometimes be wrinkled due to handling, the wrinkles can be removed with an iron. Like music performers trying to play correct notes, writing on a pre-mounted scroll can be risky since the Chinese ink cannot be changed. So I humbly asked the audience to understand and be as quiet as possible to avoid any distraction; otherwise, I lose the money and the scroll if a single stroke or any artistic detail has disappointed me.
First two characters ( 和平 ) mean peace; third ( 愛 ) love; last ( 喜 ) joy.
Picture: friends with the Mayor of City of McKinney, Texas.
