The Chinese Freehand painting enjoys a unique popularity in the world thanks to its expressive brush works and free flow of emotions. This is a painting style that allows us to be free from the rules of the physical world and create our own - a truly free space. In the learning of the Freehand painting, we become observant, we begin to intuitively capture the essence of an object and express it. The minimalistic lines also contain life philosophy.
This course is dedicated to a key combination in the Chinese painting family - the lotus flower and the kingfisher bird. The lotus flower contains quite a few cultural codes and the kingfisher brings the entire painting to life with its vivid plumage and actions.
In our course, you will first learn about the composition and how to paint each individual object, and then we will put these imageries into 4 complete paintings. In the process of learning about the structure, the growth, and the usage of ink and color, you can get a good grasp of the freehand painting. You are also encouraged to create your own paintings according to the content in our course.
Come join us and learn to paint the lotus and kingfisher!

Hi there, I am an English speaking (fluent) traditional Chinese artist who has been trained in these arts since the age of 5. Now living in Europe, I find it aspiring to share my knowledge with you, especially if you are seeking to relax your mind in an alternative way.
The courses will contain plenty of detailed practical traditional painting / calligraphy techniques that will help you form a solid base, develop your skills or master these arts. In my courses, there will also be useful information in terms of cultural relevance. Additionally, thanks to my two Master's studies and business school work experience, there will occasionally be useful content related to the Chinese business culture from an international perspective.
If you are an old friend of the Chinese art, welcome to join our art family; if you are a future friend, why not have a try at it with me? Look forward to seeing you!
