The tree painting is an important component of the oriental landscape painting. When looking at the artworks of the landscape painting, it is clear that trees are crucial, regardless of the size of these artworks. Some say that the tees are the outfits of the mountains, and the first step of a decent landscape painting is the tree painting. It is possible to consider trees the soul of the landscape painting, and therefore in order to paint the landscapes well, we must first grasp the tree painting.

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!
