I began creating Chinese Watercolor Art aka shuimo 水墨 /shway-mor/ water-ink and guohua 国画 /gwor-hwaa/ since 2020. In this collection, I used watercolor techniques to draw a variety of nature scenes. Chinese watercolors are natural pigments bound with glue. The main focus is its luminosity and transparency.
Mainly there are two techniques;
1. The filling-in technique is strongly related to calligraphy.
2. The boneless technique combined with the splashing-ink technique. Color usage is the foremost performer on the rice paper. There are no outline or shaping lines in ink, instead color is used. This method is applied mainly in flower painting but can also be used in landscape painting.
You can contact me if you need a fresh perspective and utilize Chinese watercolor for your projects.
You can watch and learn how I made some of my art by watching the Speedpaint videos and more on my Youtube channel.
