This book selects 16 combinations of traditional Chinese idioms and conveys into a variety of beautiful images. The surprising aspect is the sublime visual effect of the written characters in harmony with the painted image, even for someone who cannot read their meaning. As a practical “how-to” guide, this book opens a new world of color and ink, starting from the basic skills — as how to hold a brush, how to select drawing paper and how to mix colors, on to subsequently more difficult steps.
