Water buffalo is known as the Living Tractor of the East, as a family member of the farmers. Painting water buffalo is a nostalgic response to the industrialization and urbanization. This class is focused on the water buffaloes in the water. First, you will enjoy watching me doing a “mother, father and child” buffalo painting on a huge piece of Xuan paper; then, I will demonstrate how to paint this benevolent animal on smaller rice paper step by step in spontenous style. Classroom activities including sharing information and images about water buffalo, discussion of water buffalo painting techniques by different masters. Assignment: create a poetic water buffalo painting with the theme of “hard working and true relaxation.”

Thanks for watching!

    Dear Henry,

    this was a very nice description of the importance of the water buffalo in Chinese Brush Painting. I was really fastened to watch this video, you described it in so much detail. I liked the intergration of the importance of Daoism and Zen Buddhism within the video. I have seen many pictures of the Daoshin and Zen Buddhist paintings from China. The picture you have drawn below shows plentiful emotions of relaxation after a hard day of work.
    I hope your video gets a thousand likes!
