Have you ever wanted to try Chinese Ink Painting?

Chinese Ink Painting has a rich history within the arts culture, and here is a little bit fun fact for you and I. The practice of Chinese Ink Painting dates back to the Tang dynasty (618- 907), it is widely used to depict the lives of the emperors and their ladies. Slowly, the painting of landscape gained its popularity during the Tang dynasty as well. Fast forwards to the 1800s and the 1900s, Western arts exerted its influence onto the Chinese arts. Some painters returned to their homelands after studying aboard and integrated best of both into their work. Now let us dive in and explore the beauty of Chinese Ink Painting together. Perhaps you’ve tried oil painting, or even acrylic painting, but just a disclaimer: Chinese ink painting is nothing like that. Chinese ink painting is more similar to watercolor, 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!

It relies on the artist’s ability to capture the essence of the subjects and using limited inks and colors to portray it on to a painting. The aesthetic principles of Chinese Ink Painting rely heavily on the spirit of the subject, not the likeness of forms.

您是否曾经想过尝试水墨画?

水墨画在艺术文化中有着悠久的历史,这对您和我来说都是一个有趣的事实。水墨画的历史可以追溯到唐朝(618-907), 被广泛用于描绘水墨画。皇帝及其夫人的生活。慢慢地,山水画在唐朝也开始流行。快进到1800年代和1900年代,西方艺术对中国艺术产生了影响。 一些画家在学习之后回到了家乡,并把两者中的最好的融入了他们的作品。现在,让我们一起探索水墨画的美丽。

也许您尝试过油画,甚至是丙烯画,但都可以免责声明:水墨画根本不是这样。水墨画更类似于水彩画,其关键在于它要达到的诗意感。 水和墨水的比例在这里最重要。对于那些尚未尝试过这种艺术形式的人,请不要犹豫,尝试一下-它会打开您的视野,打开一个崭新的创意表达世界! 水墨画不同于其他形式的绘画。它依赖于艺术家捕捉主题本质的能力,并使用有限的墨水和颜色将其描绘在绘画上。 水墨画的美学原理在很大程度上取决于主题的精神,而不是形式的相似性。
