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.

The Chinese Arts Spoken in English, for English Speaking Students. “It makes sense!”

chinese art The Chinese Art Channel explained in Plain English, for English Speaking People.
Someone recently complained to me that most Chinese Art Channels on YouTube are all in full spoken Chinese. “What use is this to me. It’s useless. I speak English like everyone else in the West.”
This is a dilemma and a short-sightedness of those irresponsibly handling what is supposed to be an international arena of shared leisure and spiritual pass-time but moreover, a way of life. on the other hand, you can at least watch the method, though I admit, many Chinese Art videos spent long periods of time explaining things about the brush, its handling and so on, for long long periods of time, all in full blasting Chinese.
I am as clueless as anyone else when it comes to such education but at least the Chinese can benefit from this. I hope anyway. There are many languages in China. The on commonality is the Written language.

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.
