Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
A nice traditional wall scroll featuring a couple birds on a willow tree branch.
The title is part of a poem about the willow tree in spring. It roughly translates as, "The spring breeze quietly changes the willow branche's color".
The inscription indicates that this artwork was painted in 2010 by Jian-Qiu at the Qing-Feng studio.
This is a simple painting style, but it also incorporates a lot of detail. This painting really mimics the style of Chinese artwork that has been around for thousands of years.
This artwork is completely hand-painted and is mounted to a handmade silk wall scroll in my Beijing workshop.
The artist's name is (Wang Jian-Qiu). He lives in Jinan, the capital city of Shandong Province in Northern China (about 5 hours south of Beijing). I was introduced to this artist's work at Qin Xia's studio in Jinan. This artist has been a long time friend of Qin Xia (You may recognize Qin Xia's name from artwork in our flowers and birds category). Wang Jian-Qiu also does some great detailed beautiful woman paintings, and occasionally does some landscapes for us as well.
