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.
