Book Description

May 2005
Using step-by-step demonstrations and his own evocative and inspirational pictures, Cheng Yan shows you how to capture the beauty and freshness of this exquisite style of painting. With enthusiasm and energy, he guides the artist through all the traditional techniques, illustrating how to create atmosphere and light in landscapes, focusing on trees, water, mountains, sky and clouds. He shows how to capture liveliness and movement in animals, birds, fish and insects, and he transforms flowers and plants into beautiful works of art skilfully showing how to master composition, inks, paints and traditional brushstrokes. Detail is as important as a spontaneous style; leaves, stems bamboo, feathers, scales and blossom are clearly depicted and Yan also explores texture, blending colours to define shapes and outlines. This invaluable guide captures the essence of Chinese painting, bringing together the fun of learning, the joy of creativity and the delight of discovery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect inspiration! 15 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
This is a well presented book covering the basics of painting with chinese ink and watercolours. Having never used chinese ink or brushes before and having no idea where to start, I found this to be a perfect introduction full of beautiful ideas and examples to take inspiration from while I played with the media. It doesn't break the bank either!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic 5 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lovely book, full of beauty and inspirational ideas, both classical & modern, if only I could paint peonies like that and the little birds by a stormy sea in moonlight. Proper chinese brushwork rather than outlines filled in that some bad chinese painting books indulge in, this also has good instructions on mounting the work. Fully recommended.
