Traditional Home in Winter by Xiao Feng.
This traditional chinese style of painting – which I enjoy very much – is difficult to master. I’ve tried. Most of the time I find myself making the mistake of adding too much detail.
Feng doesn’t do that here. With just enough color she brings us back to a China of long ago. Feng was born with deformed legs and was left on a street corner right after she was born.
This work is part of the Scrolls from China archive a site which sells art by Chinese orphans for their benefit. We’ll be posting one of these every morning this week. You can see more of these pieces that we’ve featured or visit their website.
