The Birds and Flowers I class will have two principle subjects of study, the plum and the bamboo. Lotuses, peony and magnolia may also be briefly covered. Painting birds and flowers is similar to writing a calligraphy in the sense that it is the placement of the stroke that is important rather than the individual strokes. In a calligraphy if all the strokes are placed correctly than we can still read the character, which is the essential. If all the strokes would be perfect and beautiful but not placed properly, then the meaning would be lost. For the plum and the bamboo it is the same, leaves and petals must be well placed for the painting to have meaning.
