Chinese Painting Techniques

by Alison Stilwell Cameron
Publisher: Dover Publications
Trade Paperback, 232 pages
Current Retail Price: $22.95

The first guide to unify the philosophical and imitative methods of instruction in the art of Chinese painting, this invaluable book by an American who spent her formative years in China studying under two renowned Chinese artists provides stroke-by-stroke instruction for those who have had no training in art. The text explains the tools of the art and basic strokes and writing of Chinese characters before moving on to demonstrate the use of these strokes to represent trees, flowers, boats, rocks, insects, and other subjects. Hundreds of illustrations enhance this handsome, invaluable guide to an immensely satisfying artform.
