36 Beautiful Flowers and How to Paint Them
Joan Lok - All books by this author

Those who practice Chinese brush-painting are very familiar with the blooms of the lotus, peony, and plum blossom. These flowers are common in instructional brush painting books because of their special symbolism in Chinese culture. In Chinese Brush Painting: Flowers, artists will have the opportunity to explore a more diverse range of blooms with the expert guidance of award-winning artist and instructor Joan Lok. Starting with the basics of materials, brushwork, and the five Chinese brush-painting methods, then moving into paint consistency, creating blends of color, and understanding flower anatomy, Lok will guide and inspire the artist to paint any flower in the garden with skill and confidence. Thirty six projects include:

  • Sunflower
  • Day Lily
  • Rose
  • Morning Glory
  • Stargazer Lily, and many others

Each flower includes specific technical emphasis, a suggested palette of colors, and illustrated, step-by-step instructions. Chinese Brush Painting: Flowers is a down-to-earth and accessible teaching guide for all levels of artist, from beginner up. More than 250 full-color illustrations throughout.

From the reviews:
“Artist Lok introduces readers to traditional styles of Chinese brush flower painting, which are a bit freer than that of English garden botanical painting. A handy visual directory of flowers allows readers to choose exercises by plant or color scheme. VERDICT: This guide will appeal to flower fans of any skill level.”
