An Original Brush painting on Mulberry paper

This was painted in the Lingnan Style which was introduced in China around the turn of the last century and brought a French Impressionist’s view along with the use of opaque white to traditional Chinese Brush painting. Lingnan is always great fun as it’s not as rigid as Classical Brush painting and we can do so many interesting things.
Pale tints, Blazing color or soft color, and also, the use of White.
Wet Brush and dry Brush too.
This style validates many traditions, many cultures, many other styles, including the artists. Lingnan School says, “We are the world!” It says it and means it.
Lingnan means Freedom .... Innovation ... Tradition ... the art of the Orient ... the Art of Europe and America. Synthesis in its highest form.
Wild or formal!
Wet Brush! Or wet and dry!
Ink wash or wide-ranging color! Strong or pale!
Vivid ... Powerful ... Expressive ... What a perspective of impression ... What fun ...
Have an amazing weekend!💕
