What Makes Oriental Painting Unique?

Chinese painting is more focused on water based techniques, rather than oils or acrylics. It is traditionally more stylized, more abstract and less realistic than Western art. The main aim of the traditional Chinese Painter is to not only capture the outer appearance of a subject but its energy, spirit and life force.
