Course Overview

This course is designed for anyone who would like to learn about oriental brush painting. Even though it is part of the Oriental Freehand Brush Art (Chinese painting or Japanese Sumie painting) style, the actual course can be applicable to Gongbi painting as well to a certain extent.

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 first in a series that focuses on teaching you how to paint the Gongbi style with unique materials, and at the end of this course, you will have your very own lily flower that never withers.

Course Structure

In our course we will focus on the painting of a lily flower, in the painting of this flower you will discover some common techniques used in the Gongbi painting, and specifically for the flower painting. You will also learn to use the colors accordingly. Keep in mind that there is more to come in order to master the Gongbi painting, but this will be a great practice in the beginning.

By the end of this course, you will have a complete painting of lily flower that will never wither!


  • This course requires rice paper (ripe)
  • 2-3 painting 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!
