Study Chinese brush painting for years and years—or create stunning landscapes in just days with this book!
Learning Chinese brush painting takes long years of dedicated study, right? Not any more! Now, with just six essential Chinese brushes and a little time, anyone can paint stunning landscapes in the classic style. Author Rebecca Yue builds confidence in new artists by starting from the very beginning: how to hold and control a Chinese brush. Then a series of painting lessons, each dedicated to a key element of Chinese landscape painting, lead to a simple waterfall painting that uses just two simple brushstrokes, "dots" and "long dots." With more practice and more advanced (yet still easy to do) strokes, the budding artist will learn to depict trees, rocks, mountains, water, skies, rain and snow, even subtle light effects. Finally, the project section shows exactly how to put all the elements together, step by step, to produce stunning works of art. A gallery of twelve beautiful artworks by the author, with detailed explanations of the techniques used to create each one, offers inspiration and ideas for the emerging artist.
