Rate this:
Artists who loved The Simple Art of Chinese Brush Painting will find themselves equally enamored of this exquisite companion volume on Sumi-E, a classic, delicate Japanese style of ink painting. All the techniques to create works of outstanding beauty are here, presented by Takumasa Ono, a master and teacher of many years' experience. He begins by looking at the "Four Treasures" of Sumi-E (paper, brushes, ink, and stone), and demonstrates simple brushstrokes and traditional ways of composing the picture. Fifteen easy, yet lovely projects range from greeting cards to wall paintings, from decorated fabrics to tiles. A special feature is an "Inspirations" chapter with 100 common Western first names done in calligraphy, as well as haikus and Zen proverbs to enhance the projects.
