I like bambu painting and here is ‘bambu’, for furniture, food, and etc…

i have seen you using all kinds of ways of drawing, but in the end, i have to conclude that drawing bamboo is the best way to bring out the best expression of brush drawing. Am i right or am i right? haha.

Yes, I must admit that bamboo drawing is the best way to express brush painting. It is one of the “gentlemen” in Chinese painting that students have to master. However, I honestly have to say that after all these years of practicing, I still could not nail it right. Or I should say, I did not practice enough of them.

i am no expert so i guess what i will say may not count, but this drawing of the bamboo strikes a very emotive chord with me. i do not know why it is, but it does. i do not know if it is technically perfect, or not, and since u said u have not quite nailed it, i suppose it is not, but to me the emotional chord it evokes in me marks it out. i wonder why drawings of bamboo can evoke such a emotive response… i noticed it is not only in me, but in many people as evidenced by the countless numbers of bamboo paintings and no one is fed up of seeing more. strange isn’t it? the actual picture of bamboo does not evoke the same feelings. so photography will never replace the paintings.

Well thank you very much for saying that. It is comforting to know that my bamboos are not as bad as I thought. Lets just say I am very critical of my own work. 😄
