This comprehensive guide shows the aspiring artist how to master Chinese brush painting techniques and attitudes. Intended as a "how to" manual, it takes students step by step through the creative process. 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 subjects: a bird, fish, and landscapes. Numerous illustrations and paintings, many in color, complement the text. Additional chapters show how to adapt Chinese brush painting to Western subjects.

"How-to" manual provides all levels of students with detailed methods for painting such simple subjects as bamboo and plum blossoms as well as more ambitious motifs. 150 illustrations, including 82 in full color.
