Chinese brush painting uses a minimum of strokes to describe the essence of a subject and capture its rhythm and beauty. This book contains more than 200 exquisite motifs to recreate, from pretty flowers and butterflies to wildlife and scenery. Each motif includes an explanation of its symbolic meaning, a palette of colours, and step-by-step instructions in the order, direction, and type of brushstrokes. An introductory section explains all tools, techniques and materials, from choosing ink and paper to achieving the perfect colour and consistency of paint. The book is also packed with advice on composing and combining images to create perfectly balanced, harmonious paintings, and ideas for using and displaying your finished art.

Features over 200 motifs with an explanation of their symbolic meaning and step-by-step illustrated instructions.

Clear graphic icons indicate how much pressure is applied and whether the tip, heel or whole brush is used.

Includes introduction on tools, techniques and materials.
