A complete guide to painting pandas, horses, elephants, and 47 other beloved creatures in the traditional Chinese brush-style. Chinese animal painting is an ancient form characterized by its simplicity and natural elegance. Chinese masters spent years, if not lifetimes, mastering the time-honored technique. For artists interested in learning it, acclaimed author and painter Rebecca Yue has developed a systematic, simple approach to painting animals in this traditional tonal style. Yue first demonstrates key brushstrokes that must be mastered, then gives detailed step-by-step illustrated instructions for painting 50 animals, whether they be rendered in simple outline sketches or more advanced expressive styles. Full of Yue's own beautiful animal paintings, this book will both inspire and teach beginners as well as serious students of Chinese painting. --publisher's description.
