During his early days in the army, he would take his sketchbook around Beijing in the gardens and mountains. Later in his career he spent over two decades sketching and creating engravings at the lakes nearby Hanjiang Plains. His journey has always been closely connected to the land. As the Chinese saying goes, ‘each place nurtures its own inhabitants’. Peng carries his affection for the land onto his scenes of mountains and lakes. The bright colors which are unconventional for ink wash paintings suggest an influence from his training in oil painting, becoming quintessential of Peng’s style.
