Shan-Shui Painting Demo by Bertrand Mao (click above for slide show)

Our chapter was honored to have Master Bertrand Mao, a local legendary artist, giving us a painting demonstration on Zoom. Mr. Mao’s paintings are based on his “PASSION & WONDER” book which stresses the importance of Chinese Calligraphy as the foundation for good brush stroke skills. With a record audience of 43 participants, Mr. Mao captivated us with his Bamboo and Orchid paintings full of “Qi” (invisible energy). We thank him for showing us his masterful Shan-Shui techniques in ink and Chinese watercolors.
