The complex lines are longer, the transition is flexible, and the center is mostly used, learning from Wang Meng and Wu Zhen's brushwork. Jane pens are used in combination with dry pens, partial fronts, and rubbings. They come from Huang Gongwang and Ni Zan. The painting, ink, and bamboo brushstrokes are flexible and robust, contain calligraphic characteristics, and are mostly influenced by the same text.
