about

Newly published titles in the growing "Artist's Handbook" series are written for dedicated amateurs and can also be used and valued by professional artists. Each Artist's Handbook has a sturdy hardcover binding so that it can be taken out to the field for guidance or used in the studio. Hidden spiral bindings keep pages lying flat so that artists can refer to them while working with their materials. Each title supplements textual instruction with 400-to-600 color illustrations showing artwork in various stages of completion. Readers will also find information on artists' tools, techniques, color-mixing, creating special effects, and trouble-shooting to correct errors. This book demonstrates the techniques that must be mastered by students of the exquisite art of Chinese brush painting. All aspects of the art are covered, with emphasis on special materials, and discussion of Chinese graphic style and color composition. Students are also introduced to the special types of paper, brushes, and ink sticks required for Chinese painting. Particular attention is given to depictions of flowers, branches, bamboo, fruits, fish and animals in natural settings, trees, landscapes, mountains, rivers, waterfalls, and other subjects typical of Chinese paintings.
