Event description
In this workshop, you will experience the realist style of classic Chinese painting with meticulous and precise brushstrokes.

About this Event

Gongbi is a realist style of classic Chinese painting with meticulous and precise brushstrokes. Traditionally Gongbi paintings are created in ink and pigments on rice paper or silk. To create a good Gongbi painting, it requires concentration, patience and a meditative mind.

Siyuan, the founder of The Peony Girl, particularly loves painting peonies in the Gongbi technique because they are uniquely delicate and provide a challenge of outlining multi-layered curvy petals.

Time: Saturday 16 January, 13:30 - 18:00

All the times listed are GMT, which makes convenient for participants from both Europe and the Americas to join.

The Workshop

In this workshop, the students will experience the two major steps to create a Gongbi painting: 1. brush line drawing and 2. layered colouring, by tracing and studying elements (including flowers and leaves, birds and insects, figures and their clothes) from Gongbi masterpieces. Students will be provided with all the study materials and samples.

The workshop will start with a half-hour introduction of the Gongbi technique, followed by demos, hands-on practice and one-on-one guidance.

If you would like to advance your skills, you are welcome to sign up for my 8-weeks' Chinese Gongbi painting classes.
