Seals for Chinese calligraphy & painting (part 1)

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

top chinese calligraphy Samples of Chinese seal stones http://bbbox.bbbox.net/cy2622/gallery.html

A Chinese seal is both practical as a tool and enjoyable as an art, hence becoming a collectible for scholars and art lovers. These are some of my collections of seals. When choosing a Chinese custom seal for our calligraphy or painting, we prefer better stones carved by professional seal carvers, and the stones need to be in good boxes to prevent dropping or cracking.
Seals are a trusted tool used for the authentication of items of ownership. From government to personal use, seals can represent a persons power, and function as a symbol of authentication in dealings among people.

Pine tree Chinese painting 6/7 waterfall rock finishing

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

top chinese painting Master painters established esthetics and norms to paint trees, flowers, birds, orchid, and a pinetree. Considering the characteristics of Chinese calligraphy and painting brushes, they usually paint trees from top to bottom, adding texture strokes, leaves, details, scales etc. The great Zhang Daquin even wrote in his essays that a tree should be painted from TOP to BOTTOM and it will be absurd if it is done the other way. Part 7 will contain samples of masterpieces of trees and future videos will be demonstrated by other painters.

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.
