Product description

Sumi-e, the traditional Japanese art of ink painting, is an ideal vehicle for teaching art to beginners of all ages. This textbook teaches readers to create elegant interpretations of such popular subjects as animals and flowers by learning the four basic sumi-e brushstrokes. These brushstrokes, the basis for all sumi-e images, build on each other and combine into various subjects and compositions.
