Chinese Brush Painting

Watch This Is Atlanta on PBA30 Atlanta's PBS StationChinese brush painting has been around for more than 6,000 years.

The Chinese brush painter will not use sketches or models but will paint from memory, according to their own impressions of an object. Nothing is improved and nothing is corrected and a painting cannot be “fixed”. The most important part of the painting is always done first, and the rest is done afterwards, in order of its importance.

The painting emphasizes simplicity, flowing brush strokes and graceful design, using black ink as well as the three primary colors.

Tehwan Tso was an engineer for many years, but now teaches brush painting for a living. “I didn’t understand the importance of art” she told us, “until I realized that beauty is what we mature into. True beauty draws people together, connects them, and in beauty we come into agreement.”
