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.


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

10. Ceramic Flower Palette
