Dragon Pond in Peach Blossom Mountain Village
Artist: H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III
Style: Pomo Xiantiao Xiezhen
This is a real-life portrayal of Dragon Pond in Guanxian, Sichuan. Techniques from the “Pomo Xiantiao Xiezhen” style of painting were used to compose this painting, which contains realistic mountains, water, clouds, and mist. It seems that the storm dragon is about to emerge, for the land, water and sky share a similar tone. At that time, it was about to rain. Dense mist envelopes the area and dark cloude hang in the sky, giving the scene a rather strong emotional appeal and a very stirring atmosphere. The splash-ink technique was applied to bring out the charm of this painting, and the center brush-tip technique was applied to draw the lines that make up the vivid scenery. The image is both realistic and artistic, reflecting skills in both large-scale splash-ink and meticulous brushwork. It is a thought-provoking landscape painting that nurtures the mind and spirit.
