    About this book

The history of Chinese painting stretches back thousands of years.
It is natural, freewheeling and rich in spiritual content. The most
amazing aspect is how the painter can evoke the spiritual essence
of the subject with only a few strokes of the brush. Many people
are obsessed with Chinese painting but are unable to grasp it.

Here, we provide the lover of Chinese painting with a book
that is both interesting and useful. If you have never studied
Chinese painting before, Guide to Chinese Brush Painting
will take you into the world of ink and colour step by step, from
how to hold the brush and select paper to how to mix colours.
If you have already learned the basics of Chinese painting,
this book provides over 200 motifs such as flowers, fruits,
animals and figures, with detailed instructions on how to paint
them. This book also covers a lot of information about Chinese
culture and the history of Chinese painting. With this book,
not only will you gain a grasp of Chinese painting techniques,
becoming an amateur Chinese painter, you will also gain a greater
understanding of Chinese culture and a feel for its unique taste.

Guide to Chinese Brush Painting also contains a special chapter
teaching you how to combine the flowers, fruits, animals and
figures you have learned into interesting and delightful paintings,
as well as how to sign your paintings in the traditional way. You
can make gifts of your unique Chinese paintings or hang them
in your own home as decorations. Both are excellent choices.
