Chinese Brush Painting
A Beginner's Step-by-Step Guide
Chinese painting is mainly presented in lines, shades and white space to express the feelings towards nature and social phenomena. The traditional subjects such as mandarin ducks, butterflies and the Four Gentlemen (plum blossoms, orchids, bamboos and chrysanthemum) contain rich cultural meaning.
This book illustrates several Chinese brush painting techniques with the use of different tools, brushwork and colour mixing. With the step-by-step projects, you can first follow the introductory lessons to learn the necessary skills of brushwork, usage of paper, and characteristics of water, ink and colours; then follow the advanced lessons to learn the compositions and more complicated colour applications.
