Ink Blowing

  • December 8, 2017

What is Ink Blowing? As we know Ink Blowing is a Chinese way to paint, put some black ink on the paper and start to blow it, in the end, use the brighter ink and other things to decorate it. It was introduced by Zhumoyun, we usually paint plum blossom, chrysanthemum, bamboo, orchid etc. For this culture lesson we have invited Zhuge to be our teacher, she is good at Ink Blowing. Ok! It’s time to start the lesson, let’s focus the class.


“梅、竹、兰、菊” what is the special meaning of that? In China we call them four “君子”。“君子” means the man of noble character, they all represent different noble characters, “梅” is representative unsullied and aspiring people; “竹” is unassertive peoson;“兰” is virtuous and capable people; “菊” is recluse people. This class we are going to blowing the plum blossomInk-Blowing-Yangshuo

It is a very easy way of painting, but it is hard to blow the ink if your vital capacity is not good, you may not control the ink, when you make the plum tree you will make the branch together. Before you make the ink blowing painting you need to train your vital capacity. After you blew it you can put your finger on the red ink and then to decorate it.


Let see our painting, which one do you think is the best?
