This was our first get together in the year of the rat and we were looking at the final set of Chinese landscapes – those created in the Chinese Republic. We looked at a range of artists styles. Those of: Au Honien, Wu Guanzhong, Chen Shenren, Wu Changan and Li Keran. We also used some new paper purchased from Amazon
Chinese Paper Semi Treated Calligraphy Drawing Painting Xuan Paper
It wasn’t Xuan but worked really well with this subject but sadly – the one we bought no longer available. It was described as a semi treated paper. It is machine made (there are lines on it) and it appears to be semi-sized. It works very well with this type of work. Amazon appear to have the same thing on offer from a different supplier.
It was a fun afternoon and will be our last until the hall we meet in is refurbished in April.
