Guide to Chinese Painting & Calligraphy BAR180


Updated edition of this practical 'how-to' guide to Chinese painting and calligraphy, teaching basic skills from how to hold a brush, select paper and mix colours, to more difficult steps, this book selects 16 traditional Chinese idioms and guides readers through the artistic process of transforming them into a variety of graceful images. The volume opens a new world of color and ink, starting with rudimentary skills, such as how to hold a brush, selecting the proper paper, and color mixing, then moves on through subsequently more difficult steps. The resulting works impart a sublime visual effect even for those who cannot read their meaning, as written characters work in harmony with the painted images to convey a sense of tradition and beauty to all who encounter them.

By Cheng Rui, Zheng Zhonghua, Jiang Yanan and Zhang Yu. Hardcover, English, 168 pages, 9.9" x 8.3"
