Saturday, July 28th, 2012

chinese painting brush Chang, Shu-Chi (1900-1957) was my teacher Zhang, Zhengyin’s teacher, and that is why I call him my “grand teacher”. They belong to the Shanghai school of Chinese painting emphasizing on elegant colors and the usage of Chinese white in flower and bird paintings.

chinese painting brush I did this painting of “Grape Vine with a Yellow Grosbeak in response to Linda Grace’s, a Youtube viewer in New Mexico, request.

Thank you, Linda for keeping me exited on this grape vine series. You will be a great YouTuber if you could open your viewer’s account and participate in our discussions on Chinese painting.

How to Paint Hydrangeas in Chinese Brush Painting with Henry Li(HD)

Friday, June 29th, 2012

chinese painting brush In this painting, I drew my inspirations, first, from my late teacher Zhang Zhengyin, who sent me a sample painting with white hydrangeas 24 years ago when I just came to the USA; and second, from the real flowers. When I look at hydrangeas it reminds me of fireworks for some reason, maybe because of the timing that 4th of July is just around the corner but also the shape and the colors of the hydrangea flowers, all that set the mood of this painting. I hope you enjoy watching the whole process although might be a little too long. Like I said in my chrysanthemum class, which will be shown next month in my class, drawing those flower petals one by one makes us calm down and brings inner peace to our mind. So, thanks for your patience!
For those of you who likes to take an online class from me now it’s time to register, the class will start on July 16th. For more info please visit https://www.blueheronarts.com/information.php?info_id=5

Someone asked me how to make a piece of paper into he fan face shape, and I tried to show in this photo. Just fold it inhalf and then start from the center to make multiple slant folds, with narrower bottom and wider top. Then cut the top and bottom off. Here you go the fan face. The paper used is quite bigger than you might think you need, you may use your wasted painting or newspaper to try this.

Happy 4th of July!

God bless America!

Henry

P.S. the paper I used was antique-colored Xuan which you can purchase from our online store
