A Typical Painting of Narcissi

As promised in a previous blog I am posting a typical CBP representation of narcissi. Note  the smiling ‘faces on each individual flower. There are 6 petals on each flower and there are several flower heads on each stalk. Also be aware that the leaves are not’ coloured in’ with the paint but there is a much more casual approach to applying pigment within the outlines. It thereby gives it much more ‘chi’ (energy), which is always the most sought after attribute in any Chinese Brush painting.
