This painting is very special. I was living in a small town in China to study with my teacher Wang Zhongnian. One afternoon I decided to practice painting rocks and trees. When my teacher arrived at the studio I asked him to show me how to paint the water on that same paper, Unexpectedly he didn’t stop there.
After painting the water he added more rocks, trees and finally he added colours. He signed the painting with his calligraphy and asked his wife to bring his personal stamps. The painting became his gift to me.
