What is Chinese Brush Painting?

Chinese brush painting is an ancient Chinese art similar in style and technique to calligraphy. It is typically done with a brush dipped in black ink or other water-based pigments. As a result, paintings can be monochrome, colored, or mostly monochrome with eye-catching pops of color. In addition, the paintings were traditionally painted on rice paper or silk.

The expressive brushstroke style is known for capturing the inner spirit or essence of a subject as opposed to a highly realistic rendering. However, that’s not to say the painting style isn’t capable of capturing refined, delicate details. Chinese brush paintings traditionally depicted landscapes, animals, flowers, trees, and other scenes from nature.
