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.

Lecture 1 – Introduction and Pre-Han Pictorial Art

chinese art I begin by introducing my three major teachers, and go on to outline the background of the series: early attempts at histories of Chinese Painting, photographing and cataloguing projects carried out in the 1960s-70s, changing ideas about how art history should be constructed and written. I introduce Ernst Gombrich as a model for the kind of art-historical narrative I will attempt, but also emphasize the strong tradition of critical and historical writing in China that underlies my account. This first lecture ends with a brief introduction to early pictorial art in China: Neolithic painted pots, hunting-style bronzes, the earliest paintings on silk from Changsha.

Traditional Chinese Painting – Chinese Flower Bird Painting – Watercolor. Yang O-shi inspired.

chinese painting Traditional Chinese Painting – Chinese Flower Bird Painting – Watercolor.Chinese Bird Flower Painting. Flower Bird Landscapes. This evening I thought a severe Tea-Bird would pass the time.
The paper is a single weight Chinese paper bought for me by Melissa. Two years ago. Odd that perhaps the conditions are better for it here but it is easier to use than when first tried in 2008.
I need a studio to work in. The amosphere doesnt help me work. I still seek refuge. Maybe soon.
England is quietly roting here and we, the recession victims, are being statistically hidden.
So it’s nice top lose onesself in activities that were engaged within over 5000 years ago in the Chinese Historcial depths.
