You and I

Painting in the Chinese traditional style is known as guó huà, meaning “national” or “native” painting. Traditional painting has the same techniques as calligraphy and is done with a brush dipped in black or colored ink on silk or paper. Shui-mo is Chinese for Ink and wash painting; also loosely termed brush painting is done “xie yi” or freehand style. This is also known as “literati painting”, as it was one of the “Four Arts” of the Chinese Scholar-official class.
