Rat and peach painted in a #39;Chinese watercolour-western hybrid style#39; hand painted card.
Hey rat faaaaans!!!!! I have experimented with Chinese watercolour style to celebrate Chinese New year. It is the Chinese New Year this week and it will be the year of the rat, the first symbol of the zodiac animals. People born in the year of the rat are quot;quick-witted, resourceful, smart but lack courage. With rich imaginations and sharp observations, they can take advantage of various opportunities well. In Chinese culture, rats represent working diligently and thriftiness, so people born in a Rat year are thought to be wealthy and prosperous.quot; I have added a peach as they are beautiful, have lovely colours, symbolise longevity in Chinese culture and provide rat food! Mx ?
I am just dabbling as Chinese watercolour painting is a true skill which I have yet to master! No pencil was used. I have a single Chinese brush, real bamboo and animal hair, but it#39;s too wide soft for me so went back to a normal brush for fine details. It was nice to try something different and finish a painting quickly! I used a combination of western inks and acrylic paints as can#39;t find my old Chinese ink block and stone :( ! Also used my new name stamp/chop that my family kindly had made up for me when visiting Hong Kong. I#39;ve been dying to use the name stamp for ages! I started adding my MCH initials alongside the Chinese name stamp but suddenly realised some people may not like this as a western object on a Chinese style painting, hence some have it, some don#39;t. Sorry for the inconsistency! I believe the Chinese characters mean quot;beautiful treasurequot; which is my name in Chinese!
These are painted by hand directly onto textured 300gsm ready-cut 14.8cm x 14.8cm greetings card, with envelope.
Posted via Royal Mail First class to UK and Royal Mail international standard to anywhere else. I am trying to phase out plastic packaging and move to paper and cardboard only, so please bear with me if you have plastic within the packaging. I can also provide a compostable vegetable starch cellophane protective wrapper with the card, for an extra 9p, but if you go without you can save the planet and save money! ??❤️
Hand painted, not a print, can be customised with simple text on the front if requested. Card is blank inside for your own message.
The colours may vary slightly due to individual computer screen settings, but they still look fantastic! My cards and prints all look excellent in frames!
