Painting at Weishan Lake in Shandong

2 Jan 2019

As an artist, Song Fusheng (Laodeng) enjoys visiting new places. Wherever he goes, there is one thing he never leaves behind – his paint brush.

Specialised in bird-and-flower painting, which deals with a wide range of natural topics including plants, birds, fish, pets etc, Song spends a lot of time in the nature, observing, sketching and painting. He believes one can only bring out the “life” of a subject by capturing and illustrating its very unique properties and essence. And there is no better way of achieving that than getting close to nature.

Weishan lake is one of Song’s favorite locations that he visits regularly. Located in Shandong province in China, it is the largest freshwater lake in the north of the country and heaven to many wildlife species, including herons, fish and lotus flowers.
