Chinese Calligraphy & Painting during 2004 and 2009 (Part 1)


以上約略為德藝書法網2004年設立時至2009年期間部份平日書畫練習. 國畫部份大多為未完稿或臨摹練習. 
Selected pictures, practice sheets, activities, and videos of Chinese calligraphy styles and Chinese painting of figure and landscape during 2004-2009 period. The landscapes are left unfinished because I may come up with new ideas and techniques later.
