I began creating Chinese Watercolor Art, aka shuimo 水墨 /shway-mor/ water-ink and guohua 国画 /gwor-hwaa/in 2020. In this collection, I used watercolor techniques to draw various 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 rice paper. There is no outlines 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.
