Traditional Asian painting on non-absorbent Chinese paper and marouflée on Chinese "Moon Palace" paper. In the academic technique "gong bi", it is a monochrome work based on Chinese ink in the form of a stick crushed in a DUAN ink stone (Guangdong - southern China) and diluted in water.
The snow is superimposed on the titanium white to give the relief. The whole painting is drawn with a brush created by Hokusai. Volume and perspective are rendered by the renewed passages to infinity of very light Indian ink. Great importance is given to the line, in the form of lines, dots and spots. Even the ink and wash strokes are the result of Chinese brush work of different hairs (from the softest to the hardest).
Currently, the mandatory basis is to know the Art of Chinese calligraphy and to work with different instruments to achieve this painting. In peasant scenes, humour is often present in the characters’ attitudes. The signature is at the bottom left.
