I have always loved the stark beauty of Chinese brush painting. The abstract simplicity of the medium is so graceful and alive, as it not only portrays the beauties around us, but reveals the artist’s hand at work in what, until now, seemed like an entirely daunting medium. But now, with this very helpful, easy to read, and explanatory work, I feel comfortable creating these lovely (and quick!) paintings myself. It borrows from my watercolor training, which I think would be helpful to others too, if you have even a little experience using them. Highly recommended.
