Chinese Orchid

Representing Spring and The Promise of a New Life!

Although the subject is quite ‘minimalistic’ there is much to learn that translates to other subjects. Positive and negative brush strokes, composition and the meaning of the basic strokes.

One of the Four Gentlemen or Four Seasons of Chinese Brush Painting, the Chinese Orchid represents Spring, the season of promise & new life. Purity and virtue.

The Leaves are painted in Mo Ku or ‘boneless’ style (without outline). The leaves of the Chinese Orchid are done in a light-hearted manner. This expresses the leaves flying and fluttering freely in the joyful spring breeze. This is the beauty and the spirit of Spring, and who does not exult in it?
