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).

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.
