Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Youll want to keep this book close to your painting table....Guides you from the beginning with information on the materials you need and the basic steps involved.”—Decorative Artists Workbook. “With the right instructions and a little time you can get very good results, and thats what this book provides—step-by-step, manageable little steps to the goal.”—The Crafters Bookshelf.

Synopsis:

With its flowing lines, graceful contours, and lovely colors, Chinese brush painting has a classical beauty very different from European art. It evocatively captures the fleeting moment, and rarely emphasizes perspective. Beginners can start their journey in this fascinating, precise, and ancient style with this dazzling introduction that presents the appealing tools and equipment, basic techniques (including brush loading and control), and a range of projects that cover time-honored subjects.
