Overview

The Art of Chinese Brush Painting: Ink * Paper * Inspiration by Caroline Self, Susan Self

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, this book is an excellent way for newcomers to experience this ancient art form.

Traditional black-and-white Chinese ink painting elements, along with the tradition's essentials—such as the quality and variety of the tools and accessories used in its practice are all covered. The Art of Chinese Brush Painting encourages readers to be mindful of the principles of composition and perspective, and introduces specific techniques for several different elements, including Chinese Zodiac animals and landscapes.

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! ~Sophie
