While overseas he was able to create over 90 paintings.
Wan Shuyuan, Deputy Dean of College of Humanities of Tongji University commented that Wang Yunping, “…goes after neither exotic atmosphere, nor dramatic events or novel techniques in his painting. He just naturally depicts ordinary people and scenery, and this is the feature of his painting.”
Wang said, “When I set my foot on the land of America, I realized I lived elsewhere and I had to learn to deal with this whole new environment. All I wanted at that time was to get rid of shadows and catch even a very tiny ray of light ahead by water colors creation.”
