《三希堂畫寶》,又名《三希堂畫室大觀》,畫寶編排為山水、人物、竹、菊、仕女、翎毛、花卉、梅花、蘭花、草虫共十種譜式。每譜之前各有名家序言一篇,有關畫種的淺說一篇。卷前還附有著名書畫家曾農髯,吳昌碩,于右任等題詞,主編者是葉九如。 (A common Chinese typo here is 時九如. This happened because 是 (is) was typed as 時 and the author’s family name is 葉, not 時) 此畫寶編成於公元一九二四年,選圖二千一百八十余幅,起手畫法一千零九十余條式,畫譜多選自清末、民初時期上海畫家的作品,少數也有明代陳老蓮,清人金冬心的作品。其中在人物一卷中,選錄丁鶴洲《寫真秘決》見其他山水、樹木、樓閣、花鳥、蘭竹等各圖例,多採自《芥子園畫傳》。一所不同者,三希堂畫寶編有仕女專輯,加上山水,人物專輯,堪稱洋洋巨觀。

    @bbornets Thank you …
    @bbornets Thank you, Barbara. Due to my public accounting profession, I don’t have enough time to paint. So I usually do simple and smaller objects. One night, when I did a few simple warm ups as shown at 0:16 I decided to paint more formally in the accordion book and started in the middle of the third? page. I may sign, add seals or calligraphy inscriptions, and other smaller objects in the book; or compose a long horizontal landscape later.
