Who Should Sign Up For Chinese Ink Painting class and How Does Chinese Ink Painting Compare with Oil Painting or Acrylic Painting?
Perhaps you’ve tried oil painting, or even acrylic painting, but just a disclaimer: ink painting is nothing like those. Chinese ink painting is more similar to watercolour, and the key to it lies in the poetic feeling it is meant to achieve. The ratio between water and ink is what’s most important here. For those who have not tried this art form, do not hesitate to give it a try – it will open your eyes to a whole new world of creative expression!
Chinese Ink Painting is different from other forms of painting. It relies on the artist’s ability to capture the essence of the subjects and using limited inks and colours to portray it on to a painting. The aesthetic principles of Chinese Ink Painting relies heavily on the spirit of the subject, not the likeness of forms.
