water colour ,water ink painting is traditional chinese art,
we always draw it on rice paper,some times on the fans. if not so professional ,common paper also ok .
Lotus is a common theme in traditional Chinese painting,not just because beautiful.
because it means,lots even grow in dirty water ,but Flowers are still beautiful and clean.
you can enjoy with respect ,but cannot play .
bamboo is a other common theme .Bamboo is hollow, so the meaning is modest ,because hollow means empty ,
It is easy to accept other people's opinions and other knowledge .
Christmas is coming, may draw some of these pictures to relatives and friends is a good idea ,painting, framed, write your wishes and your name with calligraphy.
