The philosophy behind Chinese Painting 

Chinese brush painting is an artwork form that originated thousands of years back. It belongs to the application of rice paper or also known as Xuan Paper (宣纸). The veneer of the formula containing rice (later also including mulberry) can understand and release ink to form rice paper. Usually, the art of Chinese painting includes philosophical concepts. Like different Chinese traditions, it is divided into multiple styles related to themes, techniques and styles. This art is one of the oldest continuous traditions in the world. Nowadays, its old-style is called guóhuà in China, which means "native painting" or "national", it is contrary to the Western art style famous in China in the 20th century. Similar to calligraphy, the philosophy of Chinese painting is normally done with brushes dipped in coloured or black ink, mostly on silk or paper. The end product can be positioned on a reel and hung. Traditional paintings were also performed on the porcelain, walls and lacquerware. Chinese painting consists of two major techniques:
  • “Gong-bi (工笔)” or meticulous attention to detail, particularly for portraits,
  • “xie yi (写意)” or freehand, particularly for landscapes.
Distinguishing between the Chinese brush painting from western painting is easy. When you will notice the black ink on the paper; it is certainly the one. Visually, some are proper black and white, while others are in colour. Particularly, some define the painting as a quiet scene and some define it as a story. In terms of style, some can be completely graphic perfection, but others pay more attention to its symbolic value.  Chinese ink brush painting aims to relentlessly pursue a transient state of mind. Even if it is architecture, flowers, insects or mountains, they are all common themes. Picture value endures only when the content is balanced and concise throughout the painting.
