WHAT IS / ISN’T Traditional Chinese Painting with Watercolor. Google Image Inspired.

Monday, February 6th, 2012

top chinese painting In traditional Chinese painting, one must hold the brush as traditionally adopted by traditional Chinese calligraphers and painters. If a person holds a Chinese brush like the way people hold pencils or watercolor brushes, the different effects such as textures strokes for mountains, rocks, trees & etc. and the eight methods of the calligraphy characters “Yong” will not show.

The relationship between eight methods of the calligraphy characters “Yong” & Chinese brush painting. These common knowledge may not be revealed in books written in English.

To understand the basic eight strokes and their application to CBP and the correct way to hold a Chinese painting brush, it’s required to study Chinese calligraphy.

In this, there lie the secrets of the ancient masters and their pictures from Google image.

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/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.
