Zhangjiajie (張家界), a city in the northwest of China’s Hunan (湖南) province, is home to the famous Wulingyuan (武陵源) Scenic Area. This expansive protected zone encompasses thousands of jagged quartzite sandstone columns, many of which rise over 200m, as well as caves filled with stalactites and stalagmites. Wulingyuan also encompasses forests, rivers, waterfalls and two large natural land bridges, and shelters endangered plant and animal species.

Mr Ip Chit Hoo (葉哲豪老師) painted 12 scenes of Zhangjiajie in 1989 (己巳), with three paintings for each of the four seasons. Each season has its own particular colours. The dimensions of each painting is 44.5 x 30 cm, ink and watercolour on paper.

Blue green landscape (青綠山水) painting by Zhang Daquian

I wish to further illustrate Chinese blue green landscape painting (青綠山水) with a masterpiece by Zhang Daquian (張大千) (1899 – 1983). His ‘splashed ink’ technique (pomo) (撥墨) is world famous. Panorama of Mount Lu (1981) is a powerful impressionistic work combining traditional brushstrokes (t’sun 皴 of the rocks and detailed drawing of the pine trees) with blue and green pomo. This masterpiece bestows the readers an imaginary and mysterious mood.
