Camellia - Composition 6: Flower Stages by Ning Yeh

This Camellia composition is featured in Ning Yeh's Chinese Brush Painting: An Instructional Guide: Gold Edition.

Camellias are often among the first flowers taught in Chinese Brush Painting due to their rich cultural symbolism, elegant simplicity, and their integral role in helping beginners practice a wide array of essential brushwork techniques. These flowers serve as a meaningful starting point for artists to master skills like brush control, line variation, color loading, and the use of negative space.

Painting camellias not only introduces you to Chinese culture and artistry but also provides a solid foundation for refining your artistic skills and techniques, ultimately enabling you to tackle more complex subjects in the world of Chinese Brush Painting with confidence and proficiency.
