In the painting, a group of mountains are drawn. They seem like they were one big range of mountains. They are colored in different colors, such as green and blue. In the middle of the painting, there are many trees. Trees are colored in different colors of leaves, such as red, white, pink, green, blue, etc. Some clouds are surrounding the mountains and trees. Those clouds are mostly white and blue. At the top left of the painting, there are Chinese characters written. It is the title of this painting. At the bottom right of the painting, there is one old man. He is wearing white traditional Chinese clothes. He is walking towards the mountain.
Lan Ying painted this painting named “White Clouds and Red Trees”. Lan Ying was a painter who draws landscapes, human figures, flowers and birds during the Ming dynasty. Lan Ying was born in Hangzhou and spent most of his early life there. His painting is a Hanging scroll. He used ink and colors on silk to draw. The painting’s size is 189.4 x 48 cm. this is a long painting.
If I were a painter, I would make the color more realistic and add more animals such as tiger or rabbit to make it more real. The various bright and vivid colors of the mountain and trees that artist used seems very interesting, but it gives the feeling that the painting has more than one season. Since I prefer realistic painting, I would like to choose a particular season to draw.
