This refined painting is perfect to release mental stress and restore your energy. Over 2,000 years ago this art originated from China, and this art form still enjoys its solid status in the art world until today. In this course, we will start from scratch, from our brush painting outlines to coloring the entire painting. We will also discuss relevant Chinese cultural aspects during our classes. This course however, does not include the illustration aspect of the outline drafting, because the skills required is much more advanced than the beginner level. Therefore, you will be able to use the ready made and downloadable outline.
Like a bottle of good wine, this painting requires patience and care, which you will cultivate along the painting process, and you will slow down automatically, as will the world around you – enjoy this excellent time of peace and quiet.
Allow me to introduce you to the bird painting in our course! As one of the gems on the crown of the Chinese painting, the bird painting (in both Freehand and Gongbi styles) is a crucial domain that requires great attention, and this course serves as a start to our bird painting courses.
“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.” – William Blake
