Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The history of the ancient art as well as the techniques and materials required to produce stunning Chinese brush paintings
 
Chinese brush painting is steeped in history, symbolism, and ritual, and closely linked to Chinese calligraphy. This beautifully illustrated book takes readers on a journey through the steps needed to produce stunning paintings of flowers, birds, animals, and landscapes. Advice is given on basic brush strokes, color mixing, and brush loading; creating a composition of a variety of subjects; and mounting a work for display. Written by a respected artist and teacher, it covers traditional techniques as well as more recent innovative ideas, and reveals the beauty and mastery behind this art.
