Li Changguo, who is in the context of Impressionism, is in a period of vigor and vitality, and he naturally began to look for different creative possibilities. After consultation and research, the doctoral program chose a more stringent degree in painting, restoration, and preservation. I went to southern Spain and entered the most traditional classicism academy. At the beginning of enrollment, I locked the desired elective courses, and first entered the most rigorous professor's study and training. Starting from how to squeeze paint on the palette, step by step from material science to prosthetics, and then accumulate the cornerstone of creation from the experience of restoration.
After being recognized in the field of materials science, the instructor introduced Li Changguo to another professor's studio and entered the high-level human body depiction course. In the process, apart from re-studying anatomy, he also learned the secret of the ever-changing depiction of human skin color. Then he was introduced to a course specializing in still life painting, rethinking spatial relationships and "how to present the rules of air flow" from the origin. Even for the light or heavy texture of the sky, special courses are also taken for research.
