Dear Steemians:

Today I would like to share with you orchid. It usually lives in the glen or valley quietly, fresh and elegant, and is always in harmony with the rest of the world. I like it very much.

Its leaves aren't soft, look like belt and sword, very strong . From ancient times to the present, Chinese people often say that watching its leaves is more beautiful than its flowers which are not bright-coloured and look fresh with a faint aroma.

My mother grows many flowers on the balcony, including orchids, chrysanthemums, lilies and cactuses. And that orchids lives more than ten years, two years ago, it began to bloom.

Mentioning orchids, we all know it is mainly ink and line, so painting orchids can exercise our ability of how to use brush and ink. How can I miss it?

Now let's start it.

今天给大家分享的是四君子之一的兰花。

兰花,清新高雅,脱俗,默默的生长在幽谷之间。与世无争,不为名利。

它的叶子非常劲力,如带如剑,不像有些草软软的。 中国自古以来对兰花就有看叶胜看花之说。它的花不是特别浓艳,但是看起来非常清新,带有淡淡的香味。

我老家阳台上种有很多花,其中就有兰花。而那盆兰花至少有10多年了,前两年开始开花了,朵朵幽香。

一提画兰草,我们都知道它是以墨为主,以线条为主的花卉。所以画兰草还可以锻炼我们的笔墨能力。这么好我怎么能错过?

下面就跟随我一起画兰草吧。

Material:

Chinese brushes
Chinese painting color
ink
Xuan Paper

The Process 过程:

画兰草的叶子。遵循“提、顿、转、折”。

此外,古人有个口诀画兰草很形象也很管用就是:一笔长,二笔短,三笔破凤眼。

三笔一组,按着上面的口诀随意的添加。

接着开始画花。
先用藤黄和华青混合调出草绿,然后再加一点点三绿色,然后再调一些赭石,最后笔尖 蘸一点胭脂。

兰花之美,美得仪表高雅,兰花之香,香得幽远飘逸, 兰花之纯,纯得皎洁无暇。但更美更香更纯的,却是那古今人们所称赞的君子风韵。

很洒脱的兰草!

谢谢,洒脱还缺一点哈!

兰花画的真是栩栩如生,Helene画画多久时间了呢?棒。

谢谢joy. 也没多久的,今年夏天才开始学画画的,先从好上手的水彩开始,最近又迷上国画。喜欢的太多了,呵呵。

那真是厉害了真的!我以为你画了很多年了

Nice painting how long did it take

·

If you are familliar with it, you can do it for half an hour. or, maybe one, two,... hours..

原來有這樣的口訣!蘭花買過現成的,但花落後也不是每天開花,都變成了觀葉植物了..

·

口诀有意思吧。。古人遗留下来的都是精髓。

This is beatiful

很赞,国画画得真棒!

Looks like almost all Chinese flowers preach same word.
"harmony"

And found it hard to understand the procedures but thanks to google (lols)
