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.
