No Oriental brush painting?

This is basically a question about WetCanvas. In my search to learn all things watercolor, I've been lured astray by Chinese brush painting. I was hoping to find a separate sub category on the subject, but do not. Am I looking in the wrong place? Or is it included in an already existing category and I'm jes too new/clueless to know?

I'll not be offended if this lame inquiry is moved and/or completely deleted. I jes wanna know.

I think I've seen posts over in the Pen and Ink forum. You might want to check there.

Have you watched any of Lian Zhen's videos? There are some previews on YouTube and you can watch the full-length videos on ArtistsNetwork.tv. They may have a free weekend coming up soon.

Great tradition with much beauty. Enjoy!

Re: No Oriental brush painting?

There is a very helpful Chinese Brush Painting Yahoo group if you are looking for online resources.

I have seen brush painting occasionally in water media as well as pen&ink. I have wondered why it doesn't have it's own forum or topic here on WC. It is one of my favorite mediums.

Nothing lame about that inquiry. I am surprised WetCanvas doesn't have a sub-forum for it already. We do have Gouache Corner which is a recurring monthly thread; perhaps if there is sufficient interest the Mighty Mods would see fit to having a similar thread for Chinese Brush?

We do get a few sumi paintings but not enough to warrant a sub forum.

The Gouache corner sticky is a substitute where gouache enthusiasts can post and discuss their paintings.

Thank you, everyone. The included links led to other WC links and wealth of Chinese brush painting activity and information.
