Brush Techniques for Chinese Calligraphy Clerical Styles: Round vs Angular Brushstrokes

Friday, July 27th, 2012

top chinese calligraphy 書法三個基本要素: 用筆、結構和章法。用筆之法有”方”"圓”之分。The secrets of creating numerous Chinese calligraphy styles are mainly about brush techniques, structures of characters, and the layout of characters in a work. Brush techniques for Chinese calligraphy can be summarized as round brushstrokes, angular brushstrokes, a combination of both with different percentages, and etc.

The statements in this video are deductive; they cannot cover all the creativity, broadness, and aesthetics of Chinese calligraphy styles if viewed literally. While inductive reasoning argues from the particular to the general, deductive reasoning argues from the general to a specific instance. For example, the word “duration” in the annotations may help a practitioner to understand that the ink tonalities, writing speed, length of each strokes, the nuances between the percentages of round and angular brushstrokes are all related to time (duration).

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

top chinese calligraphy I this lesson, I talk about paper.

The primary factor that influences writing is the writer. However, paper that is designed to be used in this context will make it easier.

Xuan (宣) paper is most popular, traditional, and prestigious. I recommend single-ply unsized or half sized xuan paper for both practice and presentation.

Xuan City: Hometown of Chinese Calligraphy / Painting Four Treasures Part 1 (Brush making processes)

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

top chinese calligraphy The Xuan writing brush, together with the famous Xuan paper, is made in Jing County, Anhui Province. In ancient times, Jing County was under the jurisdiction of Xuanzhou Prefecture, where the product got its name.
Scholars of the Jin Dynasty (256-420) were especially fond of the Xuan brush. During the Tang (618-907) and Song (960-1279) dynasties, Xuanzhou became a writing brush manufacturing center, and the Xuan brush was listed as a tribute to emperors. At that time, folk artisans made a breakthrough in craftsmanship in selecting materials and polishing the shaft. Brushes were both sharp and neatly cut, and plump and smooth at the tip, enabling artists to write and paint freely. The Xuan brushes, made elaborately from brownish rabbit hair, are considered to be the best and come at a very high price.
Because of wars in the Song Dynasty, brush makers moved out of Xuan City toward the south as a consequence, Hu Zhou brushes also became very famous.

Qatar in biggest ever daytime fireworks show

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

top chinese artist An art display that is being billed as the biggest ever daytime fireworks show has taken place in Doha, the Qatari capital.

The event is the latest in a series by Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang, the artist who creaked a work for the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics.

The artist, who is based in New York, has spent nearly two months in Qatar creating a series of works, which use explosives normally used by the military as anti-missile decoys.

The cost of the display has not been revealed, but it was funded in full by the Qatar Museum Authority.

Al Jazeera’s Joanna Blundell reports from Doha.

Marketing Sweet Spot: Quality Articles and Popular Blogs

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Beginning early this year, google made some changes to their search ranking,   in the name of providing more relevant search results for it’s users, on official google blog it is estimated 11.8% search results will be affected by this update, in plain English, google thinks about 12% of it’s search results are really bad and need to manipulated. They planned and started the update about one year ago, maybe that’s why some of my ranks dropped out of first 10 pages, but almost all the ranks promoted by articles and blog posts were not affected, some of the keywords even ranked better than before, it’s almost a sure thing that plain link building loses all it’s attraction, at least in the eye of google.

What is old way of link building any way? There are a lot of SEO company out there are doing this, they will get links from any websites which accept adding links, the content on those sites will never be updated, almost all of them are garbage, the name of link spamming sites is justified. The latest google update will definitely downgrade most if not all of these sites, any links on them will be affected too. 

A few real world examples will help to explain what I said. It was quite some time ago, I started promote the keyword, Dog Park Play Cables, of course with old way of link building, almost all the sites I got link from had too many links, and those sites had only links, no real content at all. I would give credit where credit is due, this linking strategy worked, eventually the keyword could be found on first page,   the honeymoon lasted until google changed it’s mind. Now let’s look at another keyword, chain pullers, most back links for this keyword are from articles and posts, almost no plain links, you can imagine how this keyword ranks. So contextual link wins this time, what about future? Actually this is all about content, when you create unique and quality content, not only people will love to read your stuff, so do the search engines. You probably think there are already too many blogs out there, it’s not true, there will never be too many good blogs, take a look at this blog, fathers day gift , I didn’t put too much effort into it from start, but I never stopped posting, and to my surprise, I have high ranks for some of  competitive keywords. As far as SEO concerned, quality blog marketing is much better than plain link building. If you can build a group of your own blogs, such as You Need These Chains for Tough Job, then it will be easier to do article marketing.

Remember content is king, you just need to create content, share the content with people, and put your keywords in the context you’re good to go, your effort will reward you handsomely in the end. The virtues, persistence and patience, are essential for your success, you shouldn’t expect things to improve overnight, i.e., selling online or improve your search rankings, keep doing what we have to do till the end of world. Ezine is one of the best article directories out there, new article will be indexed within an hour if not minutes, popular blogs will get your post indexed as soon as you post it, I believe you should see for yourself, Colorful Cords with Low Price, explains some interesting concepts, nice writing, good content, published on popular site, this article serves it’s purpose well.

By the way, if you don’t take social media account, you’re lost. The Twitter tools is a wordpress plugin, you can install it, then go ahead register a new twitter account and app, set up API credentials in your twitter tools option, then make sure every new post will post a new tweet, it’s real easy and useful, no one should miss this tool out.
