It took Yang one year to learn to hold the brush. It was only after two years that he began to get used to painting inside the snuff-bottles. It was also a hard time when the strength was a little stronger the snuff-bottle would be painted into a big ink blot. While if the strength is a little lighter, the brush tip would move away from the walls of the bottle and couldn’t paint anything.
It was only three years later his inner-bottle paintings began to take form. One should know that it normally takes an able-bodied half a year to learn the inner-painting in an intensive course. He was not satisfied and went on to hone his skills. Ten years later he developed his style featuring great fineness and delicacy. Now Mr. Yang has ranked among masters of inner-paintings in China with his valuable works.
