In 2011, I cut down almost all of my activities. I indulged in painting horses. I spent a few hours a day doing my horse painting. Gradually, I had developed a style of my own of painting horses. Eventually, I developed my subject to encompass the themes of equestrian sports such as horse racing, polo and show jumping. Unexpectedly, by adopting the above mentioned themes, I discovered that they had indirectly assisted me to develop an innovative technique as well as a completely different style for Chinese horse painting. . I think that this new discovery is very crucial as it is an important breakthrough in my personal art development. At the same time, this unexpected outcome pleasantly surprised me.

As an artist of the modern age, I feel that one must know how to analyze his study of art in scientific way.

Besides the skills and techniques, a profound knowledge of horse anatomy plays a vital role in painting horses. These are some of my study on the horse anatomy.
