    about this gallery...

    Freestyle flowers are the most popular images with students in UK. In China landscape paintings are usually the favourites. We don't have their dramatic landscape here...but we do share a good many flowers.

    traditionally Chinese art has been divided into three main suject areas: landscape, figure and flower / bird. Animals fall into the flower/bird category, as do most plants.  However trees are a part of landscape painting.

Bauhinia

The tropical bauhinia is a beautiful plant. Each flower is painted with a few light strokes in pale purple. The leaves are a wonderful round shape and are sage in colour.
