Author(s): Marguerite Franklin-Carrier


A stimulating, casy-to-use introduction to an age-old artistic tradition. This book, by a Chinese artist and teacher, interprets the unfamiliar materials and techniques of Chinese painting to introduce the reader to a new world of artistic expression. Step-by-step, beginning with the simples strokes, the author shows how to create, and then refine, the flowers, trees, birds and other elements central to Chinese painting. She then goes on to demonstrate how to combine those separate elements in bigger compositions; the many finished paintings in the book offer inspiration to the student seeking to expand an existing talent. Throughout, the illustrations are allowed to speak for themselves, so that the student may concentrate on copying the brush strokes and style of the experienced artist.
