The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China put forward: “Cultural self-confidence.” The manifesto of this era also points out that culture is the soul of a country and a nation. Prosperity of culture means prosperity of the country, and a strong culture means a strong nation. Without a high degree of cultural confidence and cultural prosperity, there would be no great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Culture is the backbone and soul of a nation. It creates the soul and character of a country and a nation. A nation can exist in the world only if it has cultural self-confidence. Only when the people have faith can the country have strength and the nation have hope. Cultural self-confidence is the most important factor contributing to these goals.

-Record the famous painter Zhang Chunhua
There are many different purposes for studying traditional painting art. Different purposes lead to different taste and harvest of calligraphy and painting. Some painters make a living by painting, and most of them are craftsmen. Some painters name their paintings by name, and most of them are vulgar. Other painters, aiming at self-entertainment, are superficial. Only by taking the art of Chinese painting as the cultivation of self-cultivation, can we gain authentic attainments like the famous painter Ms. Zhang Chunhua.

Ms. Zhang Chunhua began to study painting and calligraphy after she retired, without pursuing common interests, without pursuing fame, and without making a living by painting. Therefore, her cultivation of Danqing is entirely for the purpose of self-cultivation and cultivation of sentiment. She is pure in purpose and detached in painting style. Throughout her paintings, without exception, they are marked by the thoroughness and clearness of Chinese painting. In particular, her painting teacher is Mr Zhao Hongyue, a great disciple of Wang Xuetao. From the teaching point of view, Zhang Chunhua’s sharpening is a disciple of Wang School’s art. A famous teacher is a master, with exquisite skills and noble virtue. Therefore, she can always keep in mind the teaching of Zhao Hongyue’s morality and art, and can ponder over the secret method of painting taught by her teacher. Therefore, whether virtue and painting go hand in hand, it is a model that can be achieved by the master’s teaching and overhaul.

She inherited the art of the Wang School, and devoted herself to painting topics. She worked hard on painting topics, and she could do everything with meticulous freehand brushwork. If there is no infatuation with painting art, she can’t achieve the state of being versatile in any case. Therefore, her painting attainments “practice” is one aspect, and “talent” is another. Only by combining practice and talent into an enterprising force like her can she become the all-around master of contemporary painting circles. Watching one of her traditional chinese realistic painting lotus will be impressed by the exquisite line depiction. They are unobstructed in outline, smooth in both directions, harmonious in thickness, vivid in style, thick in outline, and vivid in thin line. Even if it is as thin as hair, it can show its shape and pass through its quality. The method of line drawing can be described as exquisite, without defects and disadvantages, which can be called magic.

She can paint flowers and birds with fine brushwork, and is good at freehand brushwork. Whether it is peony, golden fish or grape, it is a combination of technique, reason and interesting purpose, and it is versatile and talented. A sea of cherry blossoms, which is full of elegance, agitation and air, and sings and plays with Peking Opera, is not to copy the object mechanically, but to excavate the spiritual temperament of meticulous brushwork through the creative mechanism of ink and color, taking artistic conception as aestheticism and charm as edification, which is like a song, attracting people’s emotions and making people feel emotional. Look at this flower sea, intoxicated! This is the appeal of her artistic means. Meticulous figure painting, with superb line expressive force and vivid and clean color laying skills, portrays the spirits of the characters on paper, faces them in front of the eyes, and is vivid and true!

Exquisite painting techniques, wonderful, colorful flow and vivid style There are also amazing works, such as the big green landscape, the brush painting with changeable nature and spirit, the axe splitting painting with mountains and ridges, the broken backgrounds being scattered at random, the raindrops rolling clouds, and the mountains being green. In the rendering, which color does not hinder ink and ink does not hinder color, the landscape painting shows the charm of Lingnan and the divine wind of the East China Sea. These beautiful landscapes attract people to lie down and become a cool and refreshing state that can move people’s hearts. This also confirms the initial intention of Ms. Zhang Chunhua’s painting as a mind-cultivating from another aspect. Remain true to our original aspiration, and you will be perfect!
