The Art School In Your Home
Lian Quan Zhen started sketching at the age of 10. He is a self-taught artist who learned Chinese paining techniques in his native country of China. Lian currently teaches watercolor and Chinese art workshops all over the world. In 1997 and 1998, Lian received the International Animal in Arts Competition award. His paintings can be found in international, corporate and private collections.
This DVD has been produced to show you how to combine Chinese painting and watercolor techniques. Lian demonstrates that by merging these two methods you will be able to paint more freely and spontaneously and learn how to capture the essence and spirit of animals in your painting. Lian starts with Chinese painting brushstroke exercises before showing how to use watercolors and Chinese inks together. He introduces you to techniques including color, pouring, blending, loading multiple colors and splashing. He creates many colorful subjects -- fish, roosters, cats, dogs and more.
The clear, step-by-step demonstrations and Lian's friendly, fun teaching style make the stunning results easy to achieve! You'll be inspired by this wonderful insight into blending Easter and Western arts!
