    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.

Morning glory

Blue morning glory cascades down the page, caught in the moonlight.Painted on single ply Xuan paper, the pale blue wash was added at the end of the process, with a circle of wet newspaper blocking out the moon.
