China Painting at CBC

chinese painting About 10 students expanded their knowledge of porcelain painting Tuesday during the Joe Barnhart Workshop Series at Coastal Bend College. Alzora Zaremba, instructor for the course, has been painting china for the past 30 years. While she is familiar with many art forms, her favorite is china. You can move things around, shove them around, wipe back through the paint, add more paint on top of paint, she said. It really is very forgiving — until you fire it in. At right, Mark Parsons uses a green paint to add leaves to the poppies he is painting on his porcelain platter.

Some of the Chinese painting techniques here may be very similar to Chinese Figure Paintings

http://www.youtube.com/user/artvirtue#g/c/D2E6554BA3978F71

and Chinese Calligraphy techniques, especially Seal Style and Cursive Styles. Due to time limitation, I did not record the full length of painting procedures. Many finishing touches are not recorded and included here since they are intuitive and self-explanatory.

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.
