Lesson 32: The Creative Methods of Xieyi Landscape Painting with Prof Kang Yuyi
(*To join Henry Li's online Chinese brush painting class, please click here . )
This is my first collaboration class with my old friend/colleague Prof Kang Yuyi at Nanjing Univ. He is the founder of "art-geology," which perfectly combines his scientific knowledge in geology and artistic passion in landscape painting. In this lesson he took us through a virtual field trip to the scenic Yangtze River bank in Nanjing and then created a Xieyi expressionistic style landscape painting on a full sheet of Xuan paper, while he explained the history and techniques of Xieyi landscape painting in the whole process.
