Chinese Brush Painting Animals Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chinese brush painting is an ancient art form associated with grace, simplicity, and precision. With this wonderful addition to the Artist’s Library Series, you too can learn the secrets to painting in this classic, fluid style. Inside, accomplished Chinese brush artist Lucy Wang covers the fundamentals of this medium, such as handling the brush and creating elegant strokes, as well as information on the history of the art form. Then she guides you step by step through a series of painting lessons, from flowers and animals to a landscape and a traditional figure.

About the Author

Lucy Wang was born in Taiwan and graduated from the National Taiwan College of Arts in Taipei, Taiwan, where she studied with several master artists. In 1993, an invitation from the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Macon, Georgia, brought Lucy to the United States, and she continues to exhibit in both Taiwan and the United States. She has taught Chinese brush painting for more than 20 years and is a popular demonstrator for art groups and a frequent juror for exhibitions. Lucy’s work has been published on magazine covers, and her television program “The Magic of Chinese Brush Painting” is broadcast on several San Diego cable television stations. Her paintings were selected for use by Blue Mountain Note Cards, published by the Audubon Society and UNICEF, and made into cross-stitch patterns by Candamar Designs.
