Chinese painting: cats

Author: Nataly Kotova, artist and teacher of Wu Xing painting

Since painting appeared in China there was invented a style called "sketch of lines". Ancient Chinese philosophers, scientists and poets made sketches with 2-3 lines which were supposed to reveal "the spirit of alive movement". These lines have a nature of Metal energy. As only Metal brushstroke can change from wide line into thin one, can be long or sharp. 
I tried to paint cats in this style, this animal is flexible, the right sense for the Metal brushstroke. 

Painting in this style you don't have to picture every part of the animal, you can forget one leg or eyes. The main idea is to feel and show the main line of movement in this or that pose.
