Liu Yaping, deputy director of watercolor committee of the Chinese Artists Association, said that the creation of watercolor paintings requires careful observation, deep understanding, and personal experience.
The exhibition offers Shanghai and Jiangsu artists an opportunity to discuss skills and ideas about watercolor painting. It will hopefully enhance exchange and collaboration between Shanghai and Jiangsu watercolor artists.
