Our original Chinese Watercolor Paintings are painted with brushes on rice paper or silk integrated with traditional Chinese Painting skills in two different styles: '工笔'(gong bi) and '写意'(xie yi).
Xieyi (写意) style Chinese painting uses broad, expressionistic strokes of ink applied to paper, typically raw rice paper. This style is also referred to as "freehand" Chinese painting. Xieyi literally means "writing the meaning down" and the artists were typically scholars. Paintings are created in a single sitting and the artist is focused on expressing the Qi or vital spirit of the painting. The paper represents yin and the brushstrokes yang for the artist. Landscapes, human figures and flora and fauna are typical subjects of Xieyi painting.
Printed with pro printer and matted in white. Framed in a 8x10/11x14 in clean cut black wood frame. Each print is signed by the artist.
