Grape Vine with a Yellow Grosbeak Chinese Brush Painting (1/2)

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

chinese painting brush I did this painting of “Grape Vine with a Yellow Grosbeak in response to Linda Grace’s, a Youtube viewer in New Mexico, request. I took the liberty to share with you some of her practice paintings and photos of real grape vine in her garden and hope you are inspired to pain as much as I did when I saw these beautiful pictures. Thank you, Linda for keeping me exited on this grape vine series. You will be a great YouTuber if you could open your viewer’s account and participate in our discussions on Chinese painting.

Yellow Grosbeak: Large finch, yellow overall with black streaks on back. Bill is large and triangular with black upper mandible and gray lower mandible.

Thank you all for watching!

How to make a paint brush

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

chinese painting brush Here is a step by step video showing how to make a home made paint brush. If you enjoy painting (art painting, that is), then you may appreciate making your own brushes to suit your artistic needs. I used horse hair for the brush fibers, and a stick from my backyard for the handle. The horse hair came from my sister’s horses. You can make any type of brush you want using this technique. By the way, I just made up this technique, so don’t think I am an expert. I am creating these brushes as Christmas presents for an art kit that I am making for my sister’s kids.

It only takes about ten minutes to make a brush, so get started. By the way, if you don’t know of any horses that needed a trimming, you can use dog hair, cat hair, or human hair for the brush fiber. You could probably go to your local pet store and ask for hair from some of the animals.

How to Paint Hydrangeas in Chinese Brush Painting with Henry Li(HD)

Friday, June 29th, 2012

chinese painting brush In this painting, I drew my inspirations, first, from my late teacher Zhang Zhengyin, who sent me a sample painting with white hydrangeas 24 years ago when I just came to the USA; and second, from the real flowers. When I look at hydrangeas it reminds me of fireworks for some reason, maybe because of the timing that 4th of July is just around the corner but also the shape and the colors of the hydrangea flowers, all that set the mood of this painting. I hope you enjoy watching the whole process although might be a little too long. Like I said in my chrysanthemum class, which will be shown next month in my class, drawing those flower petals one by one makes us calm down and brings inner peace to our mind. So, thanks for your patience!
For those of you who likes to take an online class from me now it’s time to register, the class will start on July 16th. For more info please visit

Someone asked me how to make a piece of paper into he fan face shape, and I tried to show in this photo. Just fold it inhalf and then start from the center to make multiple slant folds, with narrower bottom and wider top. Then cut the top and bottom off. Here you go the fan face. The paper used is quite bigger than you might think you need, you may use your wasted painting or newspaper to try this.

Happy 4th of July!

God bless America!


P.S. the paper I used was antique-colored Xuan which you can purchase from our online store
