This is a fictional painting of the Tianzi Mountains which are located in the Hunan province of China. Tianzi means son of Heaven and is the traditional epithet of the Chinese emperor. These mountains have traditionally been the most important source of inspiration for Chinese landscape painting. I have chosen to paint these fantastical mountains with their rock spires to create a hybrid style of painting referencing European romanticism and Chinese watercolour scroll paintings. The painting is executed in stippled monochromatic tones of Prussian blue. Prussian blue, was a colour newly introduced by the British to Asian artists in the late 19th Century. By using this colour I am commenting on the continued cross pollination of artistic styles and philosophy in the ongoing exchange between the west and the east. Which leads to harmony and compassionate care for our most treasured natural wonders.
