The Art of Chinese Brush Painting is an excellent way for newcomers to experience this ancient Chinese art form.The book introduces traditional Chinese ink painting techniques developed over a thousand years ago. In 35 beginner to intermediate lessons, readers will learn to paint towering landscapes; the elegant Four Generals: bamboo, orchid, plum blossom and chrysanthemum; rugged, steadfast pine; animals from the Chinese Zodiac; and basic strokes used in Chinese calligraphy.To better understand 'the soft martial art,' the book includes an introduction to the Chinese ink painting tradition and detailed discussion of brushes, paper and other tools and accessories. The lessons are instructive for artists at any level of expertise but are directed to the dedicated beginner.
