丘策濱 – 以畫會友

我在吳國明先生主辦的「以畫會友」網站展覽至今已將近10年,而我認識吳先生也有7年。不過真正有機會與他見面和茶聚,還是去年(2015)11月我回港渡假時的事。幾次交流中,吳先生對我的繪畫作了不少的肯定,使我得到很大的鼓勵。

我的風景畫,除了表現各種技法外,還深入描寫當地的風土人情。在人像畫裡,我不但要捕捉每個被畫者的臉上表情,更著重刻劃他們的內心世界。 這便是我的風格最大特色和對每幅畫內涵表達的重視。

I DID IT MY WAY

I’ve showcased my artwork at the K. M. Ng Internet Art Gallery for almost 10 years. Because of this, many art-lovers, particularly those from Hong Kong, want to know how I approach and what methods I use to paint landscapes and portraits in watercolor.

In painting a landscape, I’d usually study carefully the composition first, then make a decision regarding tonality of colors to use. In the meantime, I would determine the technique that I’d employ. Last but not least, I would decide the essence of the landscape that I intend to depict. After all these preparations are done, then, I start painting one thing after another, ‘til it’s finished.

Painting a portrait in watercolor, perhaps, is the most challenging thing as far as technical aspects are concerned. I’d normally begin with a drawing in detail, then I immediately lay in the basic facial colors. After the picture is dried, I’d repeat the same method again and again ‘til everything is satisfactory. In my portraits, not only do I want to capture the sitters’ likenesses, but I also want to reveal their inner world.
