There is increasing interest in the West in the art of Chinese brush painting. This manual offers advice and inspiration to all who are keen to learn how to handle a brush in the Chinese manner. The text is accompanied by illustrations to enable the student to appreciate the subtleties of the techniques discussed and to follow the sequence of learning through which confidence and skill will be acquired. After a brief introduction on the historical background, the author describes the equipment needed, how to hold the brush and execute the various traditional brush strokes in ink, and how to apply colour, and then explains the different techniques for depicting contours, texture and atmosphere. There are separate sections on landscape painting and flower-and-bird painting, each covering in detail the choice of styles and methods that can be used.
