Overview

Chinese ink painting is an offshoot of calligraphy and is a beautiful and reflective art that's been revered in China for centuries. A wonderfully creative tool, The Art of Chinese Brush Painting is an excellent way for newcomers to experience this ancient Chinese art form.

The book introduces the art of painting with ink on rice paper using traditional Chinese techniques developed over a thousand years ago.

In 35 simple and intermediate lessons, readers will learn to paint towering landscapes; the elegant Four Generals: bamboo, orchid, plum blossom and chrysanthemum; rugged, steadfast pine; animals from the Chinese Zodiac; and basic strokes used in Chinese calligraphy.

To better understand "the soft martial art," the book includes an introduction to the Chinese ink painting tradition and detailed discussion of brushes, paper and other tools and accessories. The lessons are instructive for artists at any level of expertise but are directed to the dedicated beginner.

    Carring the Dead~ ch.1 the Demon By; Lilly

    Sunlight poured through the holes in the ivy colored keaves of the Ivy Tree. Shannon and Brett sat on either sides of me, in a circular formation. "What 's been bugging you all day, Shannon? you seem stressed," I said, concerned. "I..I have to tell you something, Lilly..." I looked up into her Catholic amber eyes. "I have a demon in my room," there was anxiety in her voice. Brett looked up, his face as white as a ghost. "I was lying in bed, and suddenly, someone whispered in my ear. It was nothing in particular. Then I heard a horse whinny!" Tears of pure terror formed in her eyes. Her... gentle eyes. "I feel his presence right now!" She curled up in a ball and closed her eyes. Ive never seen her so scared before. Suddenly the pure terror of Satan's prescence slapped me like my sister's hands; and I suddenly got very dizzy. The sunbathed field i was looking at spun. Then I saw him. Satan. His horse, a red-eyed black stallion, charged at me. Then the world went dark.I awoke in a dream, finding myself staring at the brutal warfare with Satan and God. Oh, how the angel's cloaks glowed with a brilliant white, and God, a gold robe. Beside God he revealed nothing more than Jesus Christ himself. I immediatly ran to him, and I threw my arms around him. At least I attempted to. Satan grabbed me, and I was jerked awake by Brett.

    Hey

    Hey, I have a question. Does my story have to be four chapters long? I've really been wanting to get one of my original stories out there, but I don't think I can fit it into four chapters.. Let me know!
