5.0 out of 5 stars Flower painting techniques 9 Aug 2009
Format:Hardcover
For me this is the best flower painting tutorial I have come across so far. Lian Quan Zhen's paintings have so much life in them; if I ever achieve half his skill I will be happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for all levels 17 May 2011
By Suzanne
Format:Hardcover
This book is a great start for beginners and a great reference for those who know what they're doing and want to lean more about watercolour & Chinese painting. Particularly helpful to me are the pieces on creating a painting - design, balance, composition etc. The instructions and demos are clear and most of all, very inspiring!
A beautiful painter and great teacher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unlock your potential 8 Sep 2013
By piglet
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was using this book from the library, but found I could not live without it, so had to buy my own copy. I find this style of painting unlocks and frees up my painting style. A style of painting, east meets west.
