How to hold a paint brush to make a chinese painting?


Use a round brush, hold it mid-way up the handle with the brush perpendicular to the surface.
Push down and lift up the brush to vary the width of the paint or ink line. Make the strokes or lines in a single smooth motion. It is easy to do with practice and the proper brush and ink or paint. It isn’t a challenge artistically and I consider it more of a craft or skill than art.
