Along the River During the Qingming Festival (清明上河圖) (Part 4) : Horizontal Panorama

Teaching students the conventions of Chinese landscape painting who are unfamiliar with art, let alone arts of many cultures,   presents many challenges.  I recommend all four of the posts but particularly point to this one for explaining panorama and strategies for depicting space in horizontal scrolls.
