Sunday Group June 2017

This month, the Sunday group worked on their final Lingnan landscape artist. We looked at the work of Lingnan Founder Chen Shuren (1884-1948) who initially studied under master Ju Lian and then travelled to Japan studying at the Kyoto City School of the Arts and Tokyo Rikkyo University. Advocating “the new Chinese painting,” his style took on a pure and remote air. Unlike other Lingnan artists, his work retains a lot of Northern School influence in terms of line work and colour but also shows definite Japanese influence and his own innovation. Again, we painted on double Xuan to accommodate the washes required with some good results
