[Category] Chinese Paintings>>>>Character
Chinese painting is different in concept from Western art. Although lifelike, it is an expression of mood 
rather than representational of the subject and it has its roots in calligraphy, which in China is also 
done with a brush. Chinese painting cannot be done successfully with western brushes since it requires 
strokes which they cannot produce. The grinding of the Chinese inkstick to produce varying shades of 
black/grey is an essential part of the artistic process. The time taken to grind the stick is used to
develop the mood necessary for the painting and to plan the strokes of the brush. This process is 
relaxing and is found to be therapeutic by increasing numbers of western artists. 

Basic Chinese brush painting requires 'The Four Treasures' - brush (fude), inkstone (suzuri), inkstick 
(sumi)and paper (kami). You also need two water pots, a rag, a small china mixing saucer and small paper 

Your brush needs to be of wolf hair preferably, set with glue into hollow bamboo. Your inkstick will 
be made from the soot of pine or tung-oil trees. Inkstones are usually of slate. Your paper will be 
thin and absorbent 'rice' paper, but not the edible kind. You do not need an easel as Chinese painting
is done on a level surface. You will then need a book on techniques. 

We supply all these and many more authentic Chinese products, including coloured inks, watercolours 
and accessories.
