Raggedy Sparrow Meets Cricket. “Greetings!” Chinese Brush painting plants birds animals, Almost…

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

top chinese painting I have always enjoyed the miniature Raggedy Birds, just merely a celebration of ink and paint and paper. Tiny. And its fun to see their gruff lil faces as they come face to face with Crickets.
I almost slipped up and gave the Cricket a European Top Hat….
Anyway, this was a cheerful practice at the days ending. And I am pleased with the colours.
This is Red Star paper bought for me by a good friend in Dallas. It is very difficult to work with if you are not Chinese trained.

Chinese Bird and Flower Painting Chinese Line Drawings from a very old Book

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

top chinese painting Thanks for looking in today. These are images of a very old book, probably from about 1930 if the packaging is believed.
I do not see this kindof art in any frequency, least of all in Europe so when I accidentally ucovered this book I could not believe what I saw. or England and France, they are both China-dead. For some reason Chinese art is something not include din their vocabulary and I wonder why.
maybe some governmental (mental being the keyword) war issues. Who knows….
Either way, these are beautiful to me and I hope you enjoy them too.
Best wishes.

Raggedy Cockerel Rooster. Chinese Bird and Flower Painting. Cockerel/Rooster Paitning

Friday, June 15th, 2012

top chinese painting Its been a long while since I did a Rooster, r a Cockerel as I think we call them.
I find them difficult as their necks can be all sorts of lengths bt it needs to be right……..
The paper is alot of fun to use, as you can see it sucks in the paint with a thirst. I like that.
My white is maries white and used “wet” it doesnt cover the paper very much and I dont really know how to use it otherwise on this paper.
I wonder what other really opaque white I could use instead, or do I layer it or use it thick. ???
I have no idea.
Maybe you just use it like chalk.
He’s cute and he looks lke a roster and as far as I could, I have tried to use the Chinese method.
I love painting the birds.
I hope this entertained.
Best wsihes always.

Making a Chinese Calligraphy Brush. The Process. “Wishing Brush.”

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

top chinese calligraphy Looking to buy a particularly special Calligraphy Brush?

http://3benefits.com/brush/the-making-of-wishing-brush/

You may not do very much better than buy one from Master Lin.
His work seems to be impressive and, as a family business, would seem to show the signs of success through the generations.
Take a look and see!

I found this site today and thought it worthy of some time for a little free promotion. I thought this was an impressive effort at describing the Brush making process.
This should be far more common to find than it is.
Good for Master Lin.

Master Lin:
“Four generations of traditional brush making have long survived in the Republic of Chinas grand capital, the city of Taipei. Lam Sam Yick, our exclusive calligraphy and painting brush supplier, is a family owned company established a century ago. They are famous for their development of high quality brushes by using all natural products. Their number one top seller is the Wishing brush which has been in the making for the past 96 years. What distinguishes this familys success in the brush making industry is locked in their secret technique of creating their brushes. Their system entails using an exact percentage of different hair types to create a perfect brush. These brushes present the calligraphy artist with higher quality by maintaining its original shape during and after usage, as well as allowing the artist different characteristic in their script. Pictured below you will see Master Lin assembling the very favored brush.”

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.

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.

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.
