Brush Painting
The art of
ush painting using
ush and ink is of Chinese origin, but has developed extensively throughout the region. This article outlines the basic foundation, history, and techniques of this art, and then directs the reader to national schools: Chinese
ush painting, Korean
ush painting, Vietnamese
ush painting, Japanese
ush painting, and the like.
Japanese Brush painting
Japanese
ush painting is a relatively recent development and emerged out of the Buddhist schools of calligraphy (Shodo).
The ancient art of Japanese
ush painting, or sumi-e, is strikingly beautiful, simple and pure, yet strong and resonant. Closely related to Zen philosophy, the art of sumi-e is executed with black ink on white rice paper using bamboo
ushes. Subjects in Japanese
ush painting include landscapes, flowers, or animals, anything that suggests a closeness to the natural world.
Recent Innovations
Historically
ush painting has been done on hand-made paper of natural materials, with black ink, and bamboo
ushes with natural
istles. Artists globally have introduced new techniques, new materials, new means of holding ink and using ink, and as well the addition of colours. This has challenged the historic notion of the great
ush artists that viewers can "see colour" in black inks, and have no need to be given colours forcibly by coloured inks as the gradations of ink itself make colour possible in the mind. The use of the entire spectrum of Sandoz dyes, has given a huge range of new colours and these have been integrated quickly: the primary colours first, and then newer colours as well - particularly in flower painting, and in over-seas
ush artists and Europeans who are less restricted by traditional
ush painting codes
 
The paintings are the excellent portrayal of the events and scenes that we see around us. The painters are the best cameras of the world. They reproduce many different types of pictures. They even draw imaginary pictures that do not exist in this world. We tend to use both thinned oil paints and dense oil paints. Masterpieces can be dyed more than once, but each time it may be different from the existing paintings.

Hi there,i am also not sure about it but in the book'Art in the western world' it is writen--Leonardo began to paint Monalisa in 1503 and which he considered still unfinished when he died in 1519.Monalisa was the wife of a florentine citizen.francesco del giocondo; all knows little of her otherwise save that she was saddened by the loss of a child when Leonardo was painting her portrait and the music was played to distract her as she posed.--the painting has been changed some what since Leonardos time.It might be crackeld pigment.It could be some oil
ush painting.So if you want to know more about it let me knowI'll write
oadly 'cause there is so many thing is writen in the book about it.In this most cele
atedof portraits gave new
ath and new content to this particular
anch of painting.
