Lucky 8 horses for Sucess a Chinese Painting Demo by Henry Li

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

chinese painting ink Eight is a lucky number in Chinese because Fa(fortune) and Ba(8) are same pronounciation in Cantonese and other regional dialects. Lucky Eight Horses has been a favorite theme in Chinese painting. I did this in a CNY’s festival at a local mall to repress my good wishes for the Year of Rabbit.
In the beginning, I was thinking to do all the horses racing forward as seen in most “eight horse” Chinese paintings, but I made the second horse backword accidentally, so I changed my mind to set them the ranch instead.

MATERIALS LIST

1. Waterbrushes
2. Semi-sized Xuan Rice Paper
4. Marie’s Chinese Painting Colours
5. Sumi Painting Colors
4. Chung Hwa Ink
5. Felt pad
6. Magnetic paperweights
7. Magnetic Board
8. Peach Sap Glue Power
9. Bamboo brush holder
10. Ceramic Flower Palette

Pine tree Chinese painting 1/7 composition sketch

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

chinese painting brush Master painters established esthetics and norms to paint trees, flowers, birds, orchid, and a pinetree. Considering the characteristics of Chinese calligraphy and painting brushes, they usually paint trees from top to bottom, adding texture strokes, leaves, details, scales etc. The great Zhang Daquin even wrote in his essays that a tree should be painted from TOP to BOTTOM and it will be absurd if it is done the other way. Part 7 will contain samples of masterpieces of trees and future videos will be demonstrated by other painters.
