Qin Huilong is a self-taught artist known for his detail-oriented traditional realistic Chinese brush paintings and bolder free-hand brushwork pieces. Originally from Han Cheng in the Northeast Shaanxi province, his works, based on memories of his own experiences, depict the local customs of Northeast China, in particular, the Yellow Earth Plateau. A blend of traditional, folk, and contemporary painting techniques are visible in Huilong’s works including “Entertainment in Chang ‘an of the Tang Dynasty”, and the figures in his work are represented with vitality. In addition to being an artist, Huilong is a writer, calligrapher, and musician. He incorporates his interest in music and history into his paintings, working to produce accurate renderings of the clothing, objects, and customs he portrays.
DESCRIPTION: Chinese watercolour painting of orange pigment and black ink depicting two children sitting on the doorstep of a building. The door has ornate handles (possibly the heads of foo dogs), and posters illustrating figures in warrior outfits. Above the door, the façade is decoratively embellished. The branches and leaves (or possibly blossoms) of a tree hang over the door. An elderly woman sits on the edge of the sidewalk or street with what appears to be a basket of food.
