Abstract:

Chinese brush painting uses minimal strokes to describe the essence of a subject and capture its rhythm and grace.

This beautiful book contains 200 exquisite motifs to re-create, from flowers and fruits to wildlife and scenery. Each motif includes an explanation of its symbolic meaning, a palette of colors, and step by step instructions in order, direction, and type of brushstrokes. An introductory section explains all the tools, materials, and techniques required, from choosing brushes and paper to achieving perfect color mixtures and the correct consistency of ink.
