A simple well-written guide to Chinese painting and watercolor. The best I have read thus far. Read it and one afternoon. Will definitely put this in my Library of art books to be used again and again.
A very clear and exquisite book that teaches the reader the basics of Chinese water color. Something I think I'll buy for my own bookshelves.
checked out from the public library, this is one i have to buy. pure inspiration with beautiful step by step illustration of the technique.
Brilliant demonstrations of the different techniques in Chinese painting and Western watercolour and a fusion of the two.
I want to learn some simple techniques for this line driven painting
