Chinese Painting

Chinese painting is among the earliest continuous artistic traditions in human history. In Chinese, painting is referred to today as guó shuang, which means “art painting” or ” indigenous painting “. It is also often called huánzu, which means “traditional painting”. The two terms are used interchangeably. Guó refers to art works created from Chinese traditional painting techniques such as brush painting, ink painting, watercolor painting, and lacquer painting.

When referring to Chinese painting, it is thought of as a traditional art form that predates the Western art Renaissance of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. It is also known as li (“ink”) painting. Chinese painters developed a vivid technique of mixing pastel and transparent colors to create illusions of depth and reality. They developed a highly disciplined method of working by applying a succession of gentle strokes and applied bright and lively colors, which gave early Western artists the impression that Chinese painting had a “brush-to-mouth” effect.

The earliest paintings are the “dry paintings” or those produced during the early sixth through the seventh century, which were mainly watercolor and silk works. In the seventh century, during the Spring and Summer Period, there was a flowering of silk production in China. At this time, landscapes were extensively produced in both the dry and wet styles. The “dry painting” techniques gradually gave way to the “interior painting” style in the eighties and nineies of the seventh and tenth century, when the first Chinese oil paintings were produced.

Landscape painting in Chinese culture is not a new idea. However, it was only during the past couple of decades that the concept of “landscape painting in Chinese style” became fashionable. During the Spring and Summer Period, Chinese artists began to use a water mill as an effective method of achieving natural-looking landscapes. The water mill can be seen in many works of Chinese landscape paintings.

The Chinese artists of that time did not start to apply ink to paper until the eighth century. Until that time, they used paints and brushes on flat surfaces such as stone and terracotta. They also used natural dyes, such as blue, green, gray, yellow, and red, to write on the walls of their house. But, with the development of the metal industry and the discovery of a gold cure for black slate, the Chinese artists had an abundant supply of black colored slates that could be used for a variety of purposes.

The development of Chinese painting progressed from simple scenes in the homes of rich artisans to more complex paintings in many buildings. When the “blue curtain” technique was discovered, the Chinese artists developed it to express more complex emotions. The most famous Chinese painter is Su Shen (the father of five) and he is best known for his portraits of famous people. However, most Chinese painting was done in monochrome. The Chinese artists used red, blue, and yellow as their primary colors, but they also used black for some elements, such as the fur on sheep.

Chinese Painting Today Chinese painting has been greatly influenced by the styles of Japanese painting, especially the art of the Furikami school. This was a development in art during the nineteenth century that emphasized the harmony of various shapes and colors. Later this art would become popular among the Chinese-Americans of San Francisco and Hawaii. Today, the majority of Chinese Americans still choose to portray their heritage through their art. Although the styles of Chinese painting have changed considerably since the early days, many of the basic principles of Chinese painting remain. One of the six principles of Chinese painting, or the ” Five Principles of Chinese Painting” as it is sometimes called, is related to the use of a large palette and the skillful use of brush strokes.

Traditionally Chinese paintings use a wide palette which can range from black to red and gold. Chinese brush painting is also very stylized and it is not uncommon to see extremely simplified versions of Chinese calligraphy. Some modern Chinese painting also uses complex patterns and many of the figures are made from different shapes. Chinese art is a constantly evolving art form, with new ideas being proposed every day. In the recent past, Western artists who have been inspired by Chinese traditional painting include Pop artist MoMA artist Banksy and British street artist Banksy's depictions of old Chinese scenes.
