Hi Kaja

Nice bottle....I would prefer it plain without any decoration... also, the flower could have been added later IMO

Thanks

Very Nice bottle.... it fits into the Chinese philosophy of “the finest art looks clumsy”... 大巧若拙

Yes .... it’s a Yan YuTian

Quite special with the 2 goldfish by the side... although they seems to be a bit out of place but I like it.

Sharing another recently painted bottle by Zhang Yong.. this is the real “Journey to the West”... (without the Monky God) whereby XuanZhang Fa Shi, a highly respected Monk travelled from Chang An to India to get the orgininal Buddhist Scripture and bring them back to China.



I like the color of the evening sun on this side of the bottle.... somehow, it remind me of those Ye Zhong San bottle where he used bright, contrasting colors that seems difficult to coordinate and made them look nice....

This is the other side of the bottle



Enjoy the art

Master Lee is quite a chatty and funny guy.... I met him once in Singapore and he told us that his tools for painting include his wife hair blower sometime... (trying to fixed the effect of the running water by drying it faster....  Grin)

The bird is a Kingfisher Rube.... their bright blue feathers are sometime used to decorate hair pin in olden days... Chinese is 翠鸟

Thanks everyone.... Da Yong will be very happy to hear of all the compliments!

I believe that his style of painting will change as he enter his next phase of life... Da Yong is now seriously studying Buddhism and has became some kind of a “stay home monk”..... (He just shaved his head bald recenly, from long hair to nothing!)

Hi Joey :

I do not know the height of the bottle but I have bought it after I discussed this bottle with DaYong.... actually, for all this time that I knew and talked to him... he has never call me to buy any of his bottle.....this is the first time he hinted to me to keep this bottle of his for myself.... you will be able to see it when you visit Singapore. If one day I can part with it.... I will let you know

Hi All :

Sharing a recent bottle by Zhang Yong, I think the calmness of a lake and also they way the morning sun shins through the morning mist are very well painted in this bottle.

Hi Adrien

I don’t have any Wang Qian bottle, and have never study his painting in detail before.... but I don’t think the bottle is by him IMO.... although it’s signed off in his name.
