In terms of content and artistic creation, Chinese painting embodies the ancients' cognition of nature, society and related political, philosophical, religious, moral, literary, and other aspects.

To appreciate Chinese landscape painting, you must first understand the mind and image of the producer of the Chinese painting. The painter stores the characteristics of the famous mountains and rivers in his heart and then forms it in his hands. 

Therefore, it is not better to use "shaw shape", but to "communicate meaning". One tree, one stone, one platform and one pavilion can all represent the artist's mood. Don't worry about display issues such as perspective ratio.

There are many types of animals, with different sizes. Lions, tigers, cats, and dogs can be called beasts, all kinds of fish can be called swimming fish, cicadas, butterflies, and dragonflies are called grass insects, and all kinds of birds are called feathers. Animals can be classified as flower and bird painting.


It can be divided into two categories: ancient costume characters, or heroes of the past dynasties; modern clothing, or model sketches. Because characters must have movements and expressions, figure painting is a more esoteric production.


Chinese painting is the collective name of traditional Chinese national paintings, also known as traditional Chinese painting or ink painting. She uses ink as the main pigment and water as a blending agent with national characteristics, forming a complete art system that integrates national cultural literacy, way of thinking, aesthetic consciousness and philosophical concepts.

Appreciating a Chinese painting is often judged by whether it can be "understood". Generally speaking, meticulous and realistic works are easy to appreciate because they are concrete and true, and belong to the category of understandable. But if it is extensive and freehand works, especially the freehand ink and wash works, it is more difficult to appreciate, because it is not realistic and the image is not specific, it is not understandable, and there is no way to know the meaning of the author. So, how should we appreciate Chinese painting?

First of all, the mutual evidence between Chinese landscape painting and ancient thought is very close. As we all know, the volume of ancient Chinese thought is very large, which means that it is difficult to have an article that can explain a series of aesthetics and concepts. In the final analysis, it is necessary to read more. . So the rest of this article is just a word.


Appreciation of Chinese painting works depends on Shen Yun

As far as Chinese painting is concerned. When you look at a painting, you must first look at the overall momentum of the picture. In Chinese terms, it means first to appreciate its "very" or "similar"; then look at the pen and ink, the composition, coloring, brushstroke and line of the painting, etc.; and then look at it last. The shape is not like or resembling. This kind of appreciation method of grasping "very rhyme" is to grasp the essence of Chinese painting. Because "Shen Yun" is a high-level artistic enjoyment, and it is the goal pursued by Chinese painters.

Of course, it is not easy to experience a kind of "very charm" from paintings. It not only requires a certain aesthetic ability and artistic accomplishment, but also a certain basic knowledge and cultural connotation of Chinese painting in order to be able to appreciate Chinese painting better.

Appreciation of Chinese painting works depends on pen and ink

In the traditional "six methods", "bone method with pen" ranks second. "Bone Method" in Chinese painting refers to the method of using lines as skeletons for modeling. It combines the rules of pen use and aesthetic principles in Chinese calligraphy. It reflects the strength, texture and beauty of the lines.

Chinese painting is composed of lines, which is inseparable from the special liking and unique feelings of Chinese artists for lines. The ancestors of ancient painting believed that: painting with dots is easy to be scattered and trivial; painting with paintings is easy to blur and flat; lines are the easiest to capture the image and movement of objects, and they are most suitable for the characteristics of brush, ink, rice paper and silk. It can be said that line is the unique artistic language of Chinese painters and the soul of Chinese painting.

Brush rhyme is the highest state pursued by Chinese painters. A kind of inner rhythm exhibited during pen stroke is formed through the unified change of Qi and strength. The sense of rhythm and rhythm with the pen is also the heartstring of the Chinese painters. Either vigorous, vigorous, vigorous and upright, or reserved, elegant and free. All are the results of the hard work and hard work of the Chinese painters.


Chinese painting is based on ink, supplemented by color, which is its basic characteristic. The two characters of brush and ink have almost become synonymous with Chinese painting. If Western painting is a symphony of decent, face, and color, then Chinese painting is the coordination of point, line, water and ink. Chinese painters are well versed in the essence of painting, and think that the painting is too boring, and it is dry; if the painting is too wet, it is lifeless.

The ink does not change but is rigid. Therefore, several pieces of thick ink must be broken with light ink, a piece of light ink must be broken with thick ink, a piece of dry ink must be moistened with wet ink, and a piece of wet ink must be reminded with dry ink. When viewing paintings, they are often infected by the abstract meaning and rhyme overflowing from the brush and ink of the paintings before they clearly see the specific forms. When appreciating Chinese paintings, they often start from here.

In the creation process of Chinese painting, ink is always inseparable. There are several ways to use ink: splashing ink, accumulating ink, breaking ink, fixing ink, staining ink, dipping ink, etc. Good traditional Chinese paintings have great points in using pen, ink, line, and water. On the screen, changes in shades of dry and wet appear. The ancients said: "The dry and cracked autumn breeze, and the spring rain," this is the truth.


Appreciation of Chinese painting depends on composition and form

From ancient times to the present, the composition of Chinese painting has many forms, and the layout is self-contained. In the Eastern Jin Dynasty, Gu Kaizhi called it "positioning of Chen's position", and Xie He called it "operating position". Although the statement is different, the meaning is the same. That is, the painter organizes and arranges the content and form to be expressed to form an overall picture that reflects personality, presents momentum, and is harmonious and unified. The realm of a work is high, peculiar and mediocre, and the composition is very important.

The law of composition has its own rules. The source of composition is life, vision, cultivation, and style. The composition has great flexibility, because Chinese painting uses a unique scatter perspective method, which uses this perspective method to show the colorful and colorful world, which brings great freedom and flexibility to the painters. It is not limited by time and place, and does not require concrete objects, but only ideas and images.

Chinese painting pays attention to seeking oddity from stability, seeking stability from danger, aligning and breaking symmetry, forming a rhythmic and harmonious whole. Most of them use the "three-seven stop" method. Placing the main object on the three-seven point plays a vital role in breaking the balance, and it is also easy to form a rhythmic rhythm, giving the viewer a visual beauty.

There are high and low paintings, so there are evaluation standards for different eras. Zhang Huaijin proposed the three grades of "Shen, Miao, and Neng", Zhu Jingxuan put forward the four grades of "Shen", "Miao", "Neng" and "Yi", and Huang Jihua emphasized "Yi", "Shen", "Miao" and "Miao". Can" four grids. Zhang Yanyuan set five levels of "Nature", "Shen", "Miao", "Essence" and "Careful". Whether it is God's first escape, or Yi first, God's second, it shows that Chinese painters are always pursuing high taste. Full of aesthetic consciousness and self-awareness, it is difficult to explore on the basis of drawing on the tradition, and strive to create a personal and elegant style, and strive to present a more natural atmosphere.


When you look at a painting, you have to look at its potential from afar, and choose its quality from near. Use the unfixed viewing distance to observe the objects. Look at the general spirit from a distance, and look at the quality of points and lines closer. The essence of the "Six Laws" is the golden rule of the tradition of painting. This theory has a profound effect that cannot be shaken in the history of Chinese painting. It is also the fundamental rule for evaluating and appreciating Chinese painting nowadays. All calligraphers and calligraphers must be bound and inspected by this law, and use this law to appreciate and evaluate Chinese painting works, and their heights are self-identifiable.

Chinese painting pays attention to "feasible, prospective, living, and traveling". All these four ideas are expressed as an "immersive" way of viewing. You have to look "near-sighted" and "do not know the true face of Mount Lu. The body is in this mountain".
