Summary

Unlike most art-instruction books, this study of Japanese ink painting is as much about philosophy and poetry as it is about putting brush to paper. Artisan Okamoto clearly describes the unique materials and techniques involved, and she beautifully illustrates each lesson. She adds sections on carving the distinctive red artist's seal and on mounting and finishing one's work. The highly readable writing style is personal, poetic, and inspiring. A better choice for most libraries....Well recommended.
