“Centered Tip Principle” for Chinese calligraphy writing

http://www.art-virtue.com/principles/p5-centertip.htm

Due to the tackiness and density of the gold pigment powder, I made a rare exception to the Center Tip Principle between 2:37 and 2:40. I overly pressed the brush’s bristle up to one half in consideration of the size of the brush and the ingredients of the gold powder. If the brush is pressed more than 1/2 or 2/3, the strokes will lose their vitalities.

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).
