1967-1998

After the Cultural Revolution comes the third stage of Mr. Qin's art creation. At this stage, the rapid progress and prosperity of the society and the stability of life stimulated Mr. Qin's enthusiasm. He wanted to get back the time wasted during the Cultural Revolution, and in the spare time from teaching, created many paintings.
The oil painting "Fireworks on the Yangtse River Bridge" is rich in colors, bright with lights and a magnificent landscape. In it, he did not make detailed sketches of characters but focused on the visual effects of lights and colors and the sharp contrast between lights and shadows. The painting well presented the joyful atmosphere of a holiday night, both physically and spiritually.

The same is true for another large size oil painting "The Lantern Festival at the Confucius Temple", which depicts a festival night. In the painting, the author applied a different and unconstrained style. He paints where his interests and feelings are with humor, romance, and with frankness and true feelings. The theme of the large oil painting "Battling" is displayed the praise of the spirit of Chinese Women's volleyball players, but he focused on the subtle art of lights and colors and presented the battling atmosphere effectively.

In his paintings "Late Fall" and "Ginkgo", we can see the bright and colorful world of lights; it is simply a symphony of lights and colors!

Mr. Qin's last oil painting is "Imaged Structure" painted at the age of 85 . It is a painting with free, daring imagination. In the painting, there are magnificent mountains and falls with water swiftly coming down from the mountain, splitting high waves in the little pond. With the magnificent atmosphere and hazy, but energetic features, the painting is just like a traditional Chinese heavy ink painting.
In 1984, Mr. Qin went to Guilin to practice. He only painted two oil paintings, the rest are all powder color paintings. He once pointed out to family that his powder color paintings and oil paintings are equally good .
The painting "Guilin Camel Mountain" takes the mountain as its theme, the author was not restricted to the detailed depicting of mountains and rocks, but focused on expressing his feelings and spirit. With unconstrained strokes, one can feel that he painted completed the whole painting in one breath.
The painting "The Elephant Trunk Mountain" has the style of the artistic masters; strokes are bold, unconstrained and vigorous.

Another painting "Elephant Trunk Mountain in Gulin" has the same theme, but is quite different style; with detailed strokes and bright colors, especially the beautiful colors of the river, creating different levels, and making the scenery very lively.
There are many other water color/powder paintings with the similar style such as "Xingpin LiJiang River Ferry in the Morning" and "Guilin Old Man Mountain" with bright colors and detailed levels, "Xingpin2" and "Smoky and Rainy Lijiang River", and " Big Maple Tree." with mist, cloudy mountains and lively water colors.
Other water color and powder paintings in the same year included "Cheri Blossom", with a strong poetic theme of blooming in spring; "Morning Exercises" with dim but lively morning lights; "The Spring in YuhuaTai" and "Spring in Xuanwu Lake", with colorful blooming flowers; calm and elegant "Snow in the Front Yard", "Pine Tree"; fresh and soft lighted "Narcissus ", and "Sword Fish".
In "The Swan's Death", the author emphasized its tragic atmosphere with hazy cold colors. With a half realistic and half abstract white swan and a wicked bird, the painting is full of tragic atmosphere.

In his late years, Mr. Qin created a lot of monotype paintings. In the nineteen eighties, due to Mr. Qin's age, it became hard for him to carry painting case and go out to paint. He began to paint at home. He wanted to express in his paintings his strong feelings about life that had been calculated in his heart for decades and decades; his pursuit for truth, righteousness and perfection. He also attempted to experiment in his paintings with various materials, colors and skills. His paintings during this time have various themes, such as realistic, abstract, mysterious, and imaginative which fully demonstrated his profound cultural tastes and talents in art creation.
"Tiger in House" is a monotype painting. The water prints made us feel the hairiness of the cat, so as to empathize the spirit of the cat – what a lively little tiger at home.
The painting "Black Cats, White Cats, only good ones Can Catch Mice" captured the instant moment of a black cat catching a rat. The cat with two big alert eyes., was crawling toward the rat The rich and various ink colors just like dry paintings in traditional Chinese fine art is very effective in presenting the character.

The paintings "Dragons and Phoenix" and "Golden Fish" have a stronger delicate, Chinese flavor; the modeling of dragon, phoenix and golden fish is quite unique and full of originality.
He also created some colorful monotype paintings, such as "Flower", "Splendid Bright", and "Scenery" "Figs". The paintings

are fresh and rich in colors that are well blended with moisture. Some colors are light and elegant, some are strong and bold, and some are bright and beautiful.
The painting "Handsome Monkey King" depicted a cute, sprightly, humorous and lovely monkey king.
Some monotype paintings are very abstract and are focused on expressing his feelings and spirits.

His painting "Dragon with Reddish Mustaches" gives us a picture of a vigorous dragon that is mounting the clouds and riding the mist. The background, fogs and clouds was made of water prints scattered with sands dyed in colors. This is a breakthrough in modeling.

Some of his monotypes focused on visual effects of lights and colors, as in Dance”, “Two Dragons Play a Pearl”, and “Dragon Raises His Head”.

As to his monotypes, Mr. Shao Dazheng commented, "fully expressed his talent, his precious interests and innocence in childhood …. He painted with much ease at will, and not restricted with any theoretic rules. He is able to intermingle some abstract factors in western arts with the free style in the Chinese tradition of arts… He is seeking playfulness in nature and freedom, or to be more exactly, the natural flow of his feelings and emotions …. Mr. Qin's very special personality, frankness and honesty made his paintings prominent and charming."

Another artist, Song Zhenying also commented, "He was no longer restricting himself to modeling and frames, but was more engaged in expressing his feelings. He painted where his feelings went and his paintings are full of life. The colors are bright and beautiful and the strokes are smooth and daring."
