  • Our Subject: Chinese Landscaping

  • Chinese landscaping is considered to be the highest form of Chinese painting. Some of the examples follow.

Our subject creates meaning by showing Chinese landscaping from over the years and how the old traditional landscaping, and the new are alike yet different.


  • Your painting may include anything like the Chinese temples, weeping Chinese crabapple, bamboo tree, pistachio tree, Chinese flame tree/flame gold, etc.


  • Media: Watercolor and India ink

  • India ink: Also known as China ink is a deep black ink containing dispersed carbon particles used in drawing and technical graphics. When using India ink, you need to use a small paint brush rather than a larger brush because India ink is runny. You can also use an Indian ink pen if you have one. India ink is normally used when outlining flowers and other blossoms, and to add more detail and other special features to your drawings and paintings.

  • Watercolor: Watercolor painting is a method used to add color, texture, and representation to an original painting or drawing. Using different amounts of one color will change the texture of a painting


  • Materials: Paper, pencil, paint brushes, water color paint, India ink


  • Steps for making the painting project:

  • 1. Get materials for sketching and painting

  • 2. Start sketching your choice of a Chinese landscape

  • 3. Once you’re satisfied with your sketch, start tracing over your pencil markings with the India ink.

  • 4. When you’re finished with tracing, and the India ink is dry, begin using the watercolor.
