Sumie Painting The Four Gentlemen

    transform them into graceful forms of nature.

    loyalty, purity, and integrity.
  • Linda Miller
  • 2006

15
The Four Gentlemen
  • Japanese Sumie Painting
  • Techniques, Examples

16
The Four Gentlemen
  • The Four Gentlemen are the four plants that are
    needed to be mastered in order to become a master
    sumie painter. To master each plant takes years
    of study under excellent tutelage.
  • They are called the Four Gentlemen because of
    their style and grace.
  • Each plant has certain brush strokes needed to
    complete it in the sumie style. As you complete
    each plant you build on the brush strokes
    mastered, and learn new techniques for the next,
    more complicated plant.
  • These brushstrokes are already familiar to you.
  • As we have learned, the Japanese style of
    painting creates asymmetrical balance, thus
    creating empty space, and simplicity.
  • The Four Gentlemen are bamboo, the wild orchid,
    the chrysanthemum, and the plum blossom branch.

Bamboo
  • The First Gentleman
  • The Father of brush painting, representing
    simplicity of life and humble spirit.
  • Bamboo represents Summer and is the most painted
    subject in East Asia. It represents strength in
    the face of adversity, and what the Japanese
    believe to be the virtues of the male - perfect
    balance, upright integrity, and tremendous
    flexibility.
  • Bamboo is the perfect gentleman because at its
    center it is hollow, which suggests modesty, and
    it is always of service and used on a daily
    basis.

19
Real and Sumie Bamboo
  • www,junglephotos.com/africa/
    www.susanwagnerglass.com
  • Bamboo grows in sections and from each section
    grows new branches and leaves.
  • Look and find the simple strokes, and see how the
    lifting of the brush tip creates the leaves.

20
Bamboo
  • Bamboo is the first of the Four Gentlemen because
    it employs basic brush techniques. It allows the
    painter to express most anything in nature.
  • By pulling the brush and lifting, you can build
    the sections of the bamboo stalk. The tip of the
    brush is then used to accent the breaks in the
    growth.
  • The leaves are drawn by placing the tip down,
    applying pressure to the brush while pulling, and
    then lifting up to thin the outer tip of the
    leaf.
  • Additional branches are painted the same way but
    smaller in size and from the growth joints

23
The Wild Orchid
  • The Second Gentleman
  • The Mother of brush painting, representing grace,
    beauty, and a happy spirit.
  • The wild orchid represents Spring and what the
    Japanese believe to be feminine virtues - beauty
    and grace, yet fragile and gentle.
  • The orchid invites you to celebrate life because
    it symbolizes reviving earths energy from the
    winter.

24
Real and Sumie Wild Orchids
  • There are a variety of orchids available but the
    ones we will focus on are the orchids that have
    the long fluid leaves and small, fragile petals.

25
Wild Orchid
  • The wild orchid uses the same basic stroke that
    is used to make most grasses.
  • The techniques used in creating the wild orchid
    build on the techniques of the bamboo and its
    leaves, while the flow of your lines will teach
    you steadiness and versatility.
  • To create the beauty of the turning leaves and
    the gentle petals, we will employ different ways
    of lifting and turning our brush.
  • Cleaning the brush and adding a touch of sumi on
    the tip to change the value of the leaves, truly
    adding a new dimension to your painting.

The Chrysanthemum
  • The Third Gentleman
  • The chrysanthemum is the imperial symbol of
    Japans royal family.
  • The chrysanthemum represents Autumn because it is
    sturdy and it defies the brutality of the frost.
  • It associates fragrant plants with being strong
    and unwavering with the change of the season.

29
Real and Sumie Chrysanthemum
  • Found at
    Naturgraphics.org
  • In the chrysanthemum, simplicity is used in such
    a way that it becomes more complex or intricate.
  • There are many different varieties of
    chrysanthemums, each with its own beauty.

30
Chrysanthemum
  • The chrysanthemum is the third of the Four
    Gentlemen and it builds upon the brush strokes
    already learned in the previous Gentlemen.
  • Layering and moving the gentle petals in
    different directions creates the inner beauty and
    complexity that is the flower.
  • Adding water to the brush or less sumi can create
    beautiful variations in your flowers texture and
    beauty.

The Plum Blossom Branch
  • The Last of the Four Gentlemen
  • The plum blossom is the symbol of hope and
    endurance.
  • It represents winter because it perseveres with
    life and beauty within it.
  • The plum blossoms are the first to bloom,
    signaling the end of winter.
  • The beauty of the plum blossom lies in the
    contrast of the gnarled, rough trunk and the
    soft, tender blooms.

35
Plum Blossom Branch
  • The Plum Blossom Branch is the last and most
    complicated of the Four Gentlemen.
  • This plant incorporates all the strokes the
    artist has built on and takes it just a step or
    two further.
  • The addition of creating the textured, gnarled
    branches takes some practice, as well as
    manipulating the very tip of your brush to create
    the very center of your blossoms.
  • The texture in the branch, the delicate flowers,
    pistols and stamens, they all take advantage of
    the knowledge you have learned with the previous
    three Gentlemen.
