Course Overview

This refined painting style is perfect to release mental stress and restore your energy. Over 2,000 years ago this art originated from China, and it still enjoys its solid status in the art world today. In this course, we will start from scratch, from the familiarisation of the painting materials to painting various flowers, birds, fruits and insects. We will also discuss relevant Chinese cultural aspects during our lectures.

Like a bottle of good wine, this painting requires patience and care, which you will cultivate along the painting process, where you will slow down automatically, as will the world around you – enjoy this excellent period of peace and quiet.

Our course is the sixth in a series that focuses on teaching you how to paint the Gongbi style with unique materials, in this course, our focus will also be on light colored flowers. At the end of this course, you will have your very own persimmon and waxwing birds.

Course Structure

In this course, we will start from scratch, from the overall outlining to the coloring of each object, but our focus will be on the painting of birds (feathers). We will also discuss relevant Chinese cultural aspects during our classes. This course does not include the illustration phase of this painting however, because the skills required for illustration are different and more advanced for our beginner level course. Therefore, you will find the outline ready made and directly downloadable. 

In our course, we will work on our bird theme, and add the feather painting to our skill set, this time we are also going to learn to paint hard feathers while reviewing all the other skills such as soft feather, ink and color laying on the other images. This is also a painting with a nice meaning, therefore in our course, we will also speak about the meaning of paintings, so that you are better equipped for intercultural communications. 

  • This course requires rice paper (ripe)
  • 1 small outline brush; 2 medium sized brushes
  • Chinese painting color (use what you have first is fine)
  • Other supplies (felt, water container, white plates)

The material part will be explained more in detail in the course.

This course is also the foundation to further Gongbi flower bird painting courses in the future, which will come out in the coming months to meet you! 

Enjoy the journey my friends!
