Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“This study of Japanese ink painting is as much about philosophy and poetry as it is about putting brush to paper. Artisan Okamoto clearly describes the unique materials and techniques involved, and she beautifully illustrates each lesson. The highly readable writing style is personal, poetic, and inspiring....Well recommended.”—Library Journal. “Excellent ...for middle school through adult levels.”—School AA.

Synopsis:

Here is everything you need to get started in the art of sumi-e--Japanese ink painting. All materials and techniques are covered, including grinding ink, handling the brush for maximum control, composing pictures, even carving a soapstone or wooden seal for signing your work, and mounting a finished painting. Stunning examples of ink paintings are shown in full color.
