Synopsis: An inspirational art course in a magnificently illustrated art book.
Paint beautiful works of art using the special brush-and-ink techniques cultivated for centuries by Chinese artists—techniques that allowed them to represent the structure and spirit of any subject. Every image provides inspiration, background information enlightens you on how the style developed, and practical guidance helps beginners select brushes, paper, ink, and other supplies. Master the skills of both the Literati (freehand) and Meticulous (more formal) styles, and see how to create each of the classic and meaningful Four Gentlemen —the blossom, orchid, bamboo, and chrysanthemum—as well as a range of elegant birds. More than 15 exquisite projects include a flower-and-bird parchment fan, bamboo greeting cards, lantern with a nightingale in peach blossom, and decorative kite with gold-fish design. The lush paintings and the delicate yet instructional art techniques will soon have you creating stunning Chinese brush paintings of your own. A Selection of the Crafter’s Choice Book Club.
Review: Quite clear...there is a lot to be learned here. The graphics throughout are stunning; the reproductions, the pictures of brushes, ink sticks and paper, and the author’s examples seem first rate. This book excels.” NAEA News.
