Chinese Painting with Aileen Pou

Chinese painting is one of the oldest art forms in the world. The key to learning and mastering Chinese art is understanding how to control a brush, and using different brush techniques to produce diverse and beautiful works of art. There are two types of Chinese Painting: Gongbi and Xieyi, which can be described as detailed painting and expressive painting, respectively.
