What you'll do
Chinese painting, also known as Danqing, is an artistic treasure of China. It is not the same as the rewriting of Western painting art. Its rewriting intentions are mostly based on landscapes, flowers, birds and characters. We sketched this time, with the unique scenery of Guilin as the background, set a table on the riverside, with white paper as the bottom, into the black ink with more than a lot of color, supplemented by colorful paint, under our guidance, you will be right The feeling of landscape is reflected on the white paper. You don't have to worry about whether you have a foundation for painting. Just follow the steps we have taught and do the following step by step: 1. Follow us to the Li River and start by feeling this beautiful scenery. 2. Arrange the brushes, papers, and pigments that will be used later. 3. After you explain the simple Chinese painting knowledge, teach you how to use composition and paint. 4. According to the landscape in front of you, after rough sketches - fine painting - coloring - refine several steps, finally complete your work and take away. 5. If you have your own ideas, you can share your thoughts with us. 6. After the course, return to the inn to enjoy a pleasant tea break. The creation and completion of a complete Chinese painting is certainly not a one-off event. We hope that through this sketching, we will not only convey the beauty of nature contained in the landscape and colors of Guilin, but also hope that you can use our hearts to feel the good of Chinese natural scenery , accepts the dual cultivation of nature and culture.
