New works during quarantine
Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been posting on this website for a while. After suffering from a number of health issues in the past couple of years, I have taken some time off in recovery. However, nothing is going to stop me from doing what I love. So the last few months being stuck at home have been a great opportunity for me to create more new works, and I thought I would share some of them with you here.
I have returned to my favourite subject of peonies. Even though we're heading into the winter season, it is nice to remember the colourful blossoms of spring.
Today I would like to show you a super long scroll painting I completed in 1994, some 23 years ago! This particular scroll is an absolute one-off - it is 6m long by 42cm in width!
By this time, I had already been painting peonies for more than 30 year, so I used this painting to showcase the techniques and style I have developed over the years. For the peonies, I mixed powder paint with water - this enabled me to depict the delicate and translucent nature of the petals, which were then finely outlined. This is based on classic Lingnan style, but with my own twist.
I have included 10 types of peonies here, some depicted growing among cliff boulders, and some growing on river beds next to meandering waterfalls. Enjoy!
If you're interested in purchasing any of my works, please don't hesitate to send me a message.
