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.

Multi-Purpose Chinese Calligraphy Brushes (Part 1)

chinese calligraphy http://cgi.ebay.com/10-CHINESE-CALLIGRAPHY-WATER-COLOR-BRUSH-/390278627445?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5ade6b4075

These brushes made by Mr. Li Gang in China meet the criterion of good brushes – pointy, even, round, and resilient ( 尖齊圓健 ). These are the brushes I personally use for YouTube videos, teaching, and public events since 2007.

Mr. Robert Bo sold them at U.S. $1 each as of 2007-2008. The new imports (available in Janauary 2011) will be slightly higher in prices with more choices of products made by Li Gang.

The brush maker Mr. Li Gang ( 李剛 or 李刚 ) is a relative of the famous brush maker Zou Jielong ( 鄒節龍 or 邹节龙 ) whose reputation is highly esteemed in China. Their brushes share some similarities. (In China, many people have the same names as 李刚. So please don’t confused.)

I provide the info and writing videos as educational resources to acquire supplies and tools for Chinese calligraphy and painting.

Inquiry or direct order: Robert Bo (972) 758-7238 in Dallas, Texas and mention Li Gang’s brushes.

Due to Robert’s teapot business

http://shop.ebay.com/chineseteapotgallery/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686

calling is the most convenient and fastest way to reach him. Robert will not know how to answer very specific technical questions regarding brushes.
For technical questions about Chinese calligraphy brushes and other Four Treasures:

http://www.art-virtue.com/principles/index.htm

http://stores.ebay.com/Big-Teapot-Brush-Jade-Dress-eStore__W0QQ_fsubZ336676QQ_scZ1QQ_sopZ1

There are over 1,000 items not listed on Robert’s forbiddencity2008 e-Bay store. The best way to look for unlisted items, arrange international shipping, or purchase wholesale quantities is to call Robert between 12 – 8 PM, daily, Texas time.

Shopping for Four Treasures: http://www.art-virtue.com/links/index.htm#4

Joshua Hough’s Disclaimer:
1. I do not guarantee the quality of each individual brush (brushes are all hand made “individually” – no productions by machines), nor the price changes and availability. Many Chinese schools in the U.S. have ordered large quantities of these inexpensive and quality brushes, so I am not responding to any availability issues.
2. I do not sell any of those brushes from my inventory.
3. I do not take commissions in any form.

I provide the information in this video solely for practitioners of Chinese Calligraphy and painting to compare the selection and shopping of the supplies and tools.
