Liam never disappoints. He does everything with flair and beauty. The combination of watercolor and Chinese brush painting is fabulous and the readers is left wanting to try duplicate each and every page. He gives detailed instruction and makes the reader feel they too can do this. Love his work and thankful for yet another beautiful book.

I have Lian Zhen’s earlier works in book form. I bought this one for my iPad and it’s wonderful to be able to zoom into the paintings to see the detail. I have attended one of his workshops and his technique may appear simple but the darks that he manages to achieve with such a limited palette are dramatic and the colours don’t lose their transparent vibrancy. I am very pleased that he has compiled a book devoted exclusively to landscape.

This book is a treasure. Clear instructions and dazzling reproductions. Most art books are only picture books. This one is a deep collection of concrete steps to do this kind of painting. He’s a true master.

Great to have so much information on Chinese sumi-e AND watercolor painting, how the two can be incorporated together, plus step by step guidelines for several paintings. Terrific book.
