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.

How to Paint Trees in Chinese Brush Painting with Watercolor and Sumi Ink

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

chinese painting ink This video in an new interpretation of the basic “four branches” concept of traditional Chinese brush painting in painting trees. You may search Youtube to find many computer generated trees and landscapes based on a very simple fractal element. In my view traditional Chinese painting is the prototype of fractal design, which emphasized on training of some simple “fractal” sets to achieve spontaneous artistic creation. Please see this Youtube video about our fractal universe:

Those fractal sets or elements of traditional Chinese landscape painting has been passed down from master to students and practiced generation after generation. You can find these painting rules and principles in the classic text Musdard Seed Garden Manual of Painting.

http://www.blueheronarts.com/product_info.php?products_id=475

If you want to achieve the freedom of creation like ancient and modern Chinese artists you need to learn the basic rules first then vary them. Like for example in painting trees, you need to know how to draw the basic four branches first. Then try to express your own mood with seasonal asspect so to give your painting “breath resonance and life movement.”

I wish you not only could learn the Chinese way of painting trees through this lesson, but the importance of fractal design concepts. That is why I strongly recommend the Mustard Seed Garden Manual of Painting. As you can see this was how I learned Chinese painting from my teacher.

Thanks for watching!

Happy Holidays!

Henry
