China Painting at CBC

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

top 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.

Disclaimers: Not all of the pictures from Google Images above and included in those two videos are “traditional (classical)” Chinese painting styles.
To know what “traditional” or “classical” Chinese painting styles are, the best sources include
http://www.amazon.com/Three-Thousand-Years-Chinese-Painting/dp/0300094477/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1287506243&sr=8-1 (purely classical plus early 20th century modern styles — A must read for all CBP people. This book is the most comprehensive CBP ever written in English. It’s very difficult to understand the techniques and terms mentioned. )
Many books written by Chinese painting professor James Cahill

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=James+Cahill

http://www.amazon.com/Chinese-Brush-Painting-Academic-Approach/dp/0984291504/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1287506243&sr=8-2#_ More modern, less traditional (classical)
Chinese painting books by O-shi Yang – More modern, less traditional (classical), mostly spontaneous styles
The terms “traditional Chinese painting,” “traditional Chinese calligraphy” and “traditionalchinesecalligraphy” have been improperly exploited and recognized by people who have not study Chinese calligraphy and CBP seriously and correctly.

To know what “traditional Chinese calligraphy” is, this is the best English book that has purely 100% “traditional Chinese calligraphy” as written by historical Chinese masters and collected by museums in China, Europe (including Germany and England), Japan, and U.S.

http://www.amazon.com/Chinese-Calligraphy-Culture-Civilization-China/dp/0300121075/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1287508147&sr=1-3

After reading those two “3000 Years” books in depth, we will know how seriously Chinese people consider what “traditional” or “classical” should be as related to the styles of Chinese calligraphy and Chinese brush painting. That’s why a student of Chinese calligraphy and Chinese brush painting, no matter a Chinese or a Westerner, a professor or a new beginner, should never, knowingly or unknowingly, use the terms “traditional Chinese painting” & “traditional Chinese calligraphy” lightly and improperly.

Traditional Chinese Painting – Chinese Flower Bird Painting – Watercolor. Yang O-shi inspired.

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

top 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.
