Peacock:Chinese Brush Painting by phoenixfyre6967 Peacock:Chinese Brush Painting by phoenixfyre6967
Well, i spent 4 maybe 5 hours on this (which wasn't too bad) but my dog ripped it nearly in half so there's only like 3 inches holding it together. (if you look very carefully, the rip is at the right side and starts at the top)

But good thing in chinese brush painting it's totally repairable (if i don't make another mistake that is...) since in traditional, chinese brush painting, they do this thing with paintings where they sort of paste it to another sheet of paper to strengthen it, and paste that to a sort of cloth, which is kind of like their version of framing, so i'm not too angry or sad.

Wonderful painting!I love the colors and composition of the piece.
Beautiful details in the feathers!
May I ask what the difference between Chinese painting and traditional painting is? :3
I have never worked with a tecnique so distinct before, so it's very exiting!

Chinese Brush Paintings, or at least the style I work with, uses paints similar to watercolors, and super thin paper, and it takes a lot of control of your brush and water to be able to work with the absorbent paper. It's built to be a fairly fast style, and really meant to give an idea of what something looks like, and really tries to take advantage of negative space. I guess it's like a super early form of abstraction, with more constraints.

Very nice. The blue colour is beautiful. Did you use ink? or paint? I also have a chinese brush and use it with thin ink. The legs of the bid and the head are very elegant. I think you used a pen here. Is that right? Perhaps it would be nice to use those elegant pen strokes more in the feathers as well.

Thank you :), I use ink and paint, the paint is sort of similar to water colors. And actually, Chinese brush painting is almost always done without pen, I don't think it's even possible considering how thin the paper is.
