Method has Zhuojin painting majestic achievements into a school of record of The Times
The Yellow River is mother River, but in most people's mind, the Yellow River is more like an abstract and thin noun, may not be able to understand its majestic and spectacular sight. More than never seen the Yellow River, even if the Yellow River in person, will not be quickly extracted into the mind of the Yellow River spirit. If you have seen the great landscape works of the Yellow River by the famous painter Dong Baohong, you can experience the majestic momentum of the Yellow River from the artistic perspective, the height of its charm and the spiritual atmosphere. He is a bosom friend of the spiritual image of the Yellow River, and the first person to accurately express the spirit of the Yellow River in landscape painting!
Why can Dong Baohong become the bosom friend of the Yellow River spirit? There should be three reasons, one is he has professional landscape almighty expressionist skills, from pen peleg line to the colors on rhyme, from leaning far composition to rhyme scheduling, which embodies the professional level of a professional painter, with seiko technique, good at its shape, can also be omnipotent brewing expression, she with professional why Dong Baohong become the painting of the Yellow River spirit meaning understanding friend? There should be three reasons, one is he has professional landscape almighty expressionist skills, from pen peleg line to the colors on rhyme, from leaning far composition to rhyme scheduling, which embodies the professional level of a professional painter, with seiko technique, good at its shape, can also be omnipotent brewing expression, she personified in the landscape with professional spirit realm to perfection, it has a solid technical foundation, that is what he means painted Yellow River nearly finished bottom of base rock. When the spirit expresses the personification state of the landscape to the perfect state, it has a solid technical foundation, which is the bastion stone that he intended to draw the Yellow River.
Second, he has the ancient and natural persistence of the division. In the contemporary painting world, landscape painting has two different orients. One is to close the door on the old work and only use the master's score to draw the same pattern. This is not a creation, but a copy of special intention. The second is to abandon the traditional expressionist technique, and to paint the real mountain according to the real mountain, and to paint the elephant landscape, which is a realistic repetition technique, and the ink becomes the camera, which is another kind of rigid form. Whether it is the master ancient, or the master natural, are rigid landscape painting, rare rich contemporary disadvantages. Mr Dong Baohong picture of the Yellow River, has its own original and independent, he jumped out of the contemporary landscape evils vortex and shallow, learning from the path, both ancient, is natural, so his landscape can take images as on, seems like as expressionism core of beauty, and the texture is the comprehensive performance of the Yellow River, the vigor of detachment.
He is an artist who admires the tradition and respects the nature. He has made persistent efforts to learn the ancient style, and has accumulated rich experiences in sketching. Therefore, he knows the Yellow River best and can best turn the spiritual quality of the Yellow River into a landscape wonder with pen and ink.
In addition, there is also a very important reason, let him become the best in the Yellow River landscape theme of freehand brushwork spirit and the reason is that he is on the Yellow River is the feelings of the artist, his mood and mind with the Yellow River flows in, be in harmony are an organic whole, deep emotion, so from the realm of self-cultivation, others can't surpass his creation idea of the Yellow River height, "ink and the Yellow River", cut the mind work, only its exclusive!
The method has zhuojin painting majestic, achievement into a school to record The Times. The Yellow River is the powerful and profound, one thousand years, and the painter can like Dong Hongbao stood in the height of the picture, all the time and space system under the background of times for the Yellow River panoramic ink, so his landscape is accomplished in one door, alone into one model, it is not just the clear proof of personal artistic attainments, also of the Yellow River culture retained into visual art of eternal!
