Movie Reviews

Chinese Brush painting DVD
B. Canning | 08/08/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is the best DVD I've seen on Chinese Brush Painting. Just don't be frightened by Jane's discussion of Chinese and Japanese paint. Nice stuff to know, but ordinary watercolor paint works fine."
Selling damaged DVD

"The overall DVD is very informative however the chapter on bamboo painting ( why I bought the DVD) which the narrator says is the most important part of Chinese brush painting is a dark spot with the text "Damaged Tape" and they skip the whole chapter. Don't sell damaged goods or fix it or give a warning that it is not a complete DVD."

"Jane Evan's DVD on An Introduction to Chinese Brush Painting does not do justice to her skills as a teacher. The movie is amateurishly produced and the limited angles prevent viewing the way she loads her brush. It is not organized step by step as she moves from one topic to the next, she mumbles into her work, instead of speaking up into the camera and the strokes are too quickly executed without adequate explanation. More explanations on how to move the brush, the direction of the strokes and how to load the ink or color on the brush are required.This is not a movie for beginners.

The Dancing Brush"

"This combined with the book to me are perfect to get going with chinese painting. My big groan about the disc is that you cannot play it on the computor, it has to be seen on the TV, ie disturbing the whole household just when everyone wants to be quiet. Other painting tapes can be played on the computor which is indeed a great joy and one watches them a lot. I am now stuck half way with this disc waiting for an opportunity to play it when noone else is around, probably will wait until next winter. But it is proper brush painting and not filling in outlines, thus tremendously exciting in my opinion."
