From a series of books that I came across on my last visit to China, I am very impressed with the detail for learning meticulous painting and the subject of this book is the Lotus flower.
The book begins with the line work and shading for meticulous work and then launches into painting of a simple lotus. There are fourteen step by step instructions for painting Lotus, buds, leaves etc There are photographs of each step of the artist painting, showing brush hold and brushstrokes (approx 12 on each page) There are ouline drawings of Lotus compositions that you can try for yourself, plus additional completed compositions of Lotus at all stages including rotting away for winter.
A beautiful, informative and inspiring book
