The traditional Vietnamese art of silk painting has become famous around the world for its simple poetic themes and delicate colors.
Differently, with other kinds of paintings, the silk canvas is usually not painted. The Vietnamese traditional silk painting style tends to use the silk canvas directly as the background of the painting. The colors are used delicately with the canvas to make the paintings. The delicate white color found in the sky, water, or human portrait, is the color of silk. The design of the paintings with bamboo scrolls made it very easy to hang.
