Moonlight evening/ink and color painting
A pair poetry from Yang Wan li of Song Dynasty: “Standing in the creek waiting for moon, moon knows I am waiting then keeps me waiting.” The poet knows moon will come out that night, he keeps waiting but moon seems to know his waiting so comes out late – no matter moon comes out or not, poetry can be written.
Now, misty moonlight, an old moon hanging in the sky, a thin cloud drifting over and cover the moon, still a gray moonlight oozed from cloud.
In this painting, to make a distinction, I applied a bit umber in a part. – In fact, in the moonlight, everything on earth is dull and dark, no a slight color at all.@
