Gufa yongbi : “bone-means use brush;” – Brushstrokes. 3. Yingwu xiangxing : “fidelity to the object in portraying forms;” – Realism. 4. Suilei fucai : “conformity to kind in applying colors;” – Daoism (not preferred to use a lot of colors – monochromatic: black/grey). 5. Jingyin weizhi : “proper planning in placing [of elements];” 6. Chuanyi muxie : “that by copying, the ancient models should be perpetuated.” – Respect the original artist.
