This comprehensive guide shows the aspiring artist how to master Chinese brush painting techniques and philosophies. Intended as a "how-to" manual, the book takes students step by step through a creative process that helps achieve the flowing, spontaneous style of this unique art form. The heart of the book is devoted to detailed methods for painting such simple subjects as bamboo and plum blossoms, and then moves on to more ambitious motifs, such as birds, fish, and landscapes. The 150 superb illustrations-82 of which are in full color-complement a text that covers both traditional and modern techniques and shows how Eastern methods can be adapted to Western subjects. Thorough in its instructional approach and rich in creative possibilities, this inspirational and superbly illustrated book will be indispensable to artists at all skill levels in search of new and exciting methods of artistic expression.
