Raggedy Sparrow Meets Cricket. “Greetings!” Chinese Brush painting plants birds animals, Almost…

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

top chinese painting I have always enjoyed the miniature Raggedy Birds, just merely a celebration of ink and paint and paper. Tiny. And its fun to see their gruff lil faces as they come face to face with Crickets.
I almost slipped up and gave the Cricket a European Top Hat….
Anyway, this was a cheerful practice at the days ending. And I am pleased with the colours.
This is Red Star paper bought for me by a good friend in Dallas. It is very difficult to work with if you are not Chinese trained.

Chinese Bird and Flower Painting Chinese Line Drawings from a very old Book

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

top chinese painting Thanks for looking in today. These are images of a very old book, probably from about 1930 if the packaging is believed.
I do not see this kindof art in any frequency, least of all in Europe so when I accidentally ucovered this book I could not believe what I saw. or England and France, they are both China-dead. For some reason Chinese art is something not include din their vocabulary and I wonder why.
maybe some governmental (mental being the keyword) war issues. Who knows….
Either way, these are beautiful to me and I hope you enjoy them too.
Best wishes.

Mountain 山 in Chinese Calligraphy Styles

Monday, June 18th, 2012

top chinese calligraphy Evolution of Chinese calligraphy styles

Different styles of Chinese calligraphy

It’s not necessary for a Chinese calligraphy teacher / student and a Mandarin Chinese teacher/student to teach or learn various styles of Chinese calligraphy and 異體字 (variant Chinese characters) unless one is determined to master Chinese linguistics, calligraphy, sinology, seal carving, and/or etymology ( 文字學 ). Please understand that no one is able to memorize all those variant versions of Chinese characters in different calligraphy styles and this video only includes some portion of the different versions of a character and is not intended to confuse a beginner when learning Chinese. The different versions of characters and their brushstroke methods are usually good sources of learning Chinese history and calligraphy and their related subjects.

To search for a specific Chinese character, please use ” Free Chinese Calligraphy Dictionary from ”

山 mountain (Pinyin: shan1)
The styles included in this video are 大篆, 小篆, 隸書, 行草書, and 楷書 and are mostly arranged in chronological order.

Why do Chinese people call Chinese scripts “Chinese characters or Hanji” but not “Chinese symbols?”

Raggedy Cockerel Rooster. Chinese Bird and Flower Painting. Cockerel/Rooster Paitning

Friday, June 15th, 2012

top chinese painting Its been a long while since I did a Rooster, r a Cockerel as I think we call them.
I find them difficult as their necks can be all sorts of lengths bt it needs to be right……..
The paper is alot of fun to use, as you can see it sucks in the paint with a thirst. I like that.
My white is maries white and used “wet” it doesnt cover the paper very much and I dont really know how to use it otherwise on this paper.
I wonder what other really opaque white I could use instead, or do I layer it or use it thick. ???
I have no idea.
Maybe you just use it like chalk.
He’s cute and he looks lke a roster and as far as I could, I have tried to use the Chinese method.
I love painting the birds.
I hope this entertained.
Best wsihes always.
