The right posture is often determining the outcome of your artwork when creating Oriental - i.e. Chinese or Japanese art. Being able to position your source of inspiration in an upright position right in front of you - regardless if it is another painting, a book or some painting cards - will help you improve your body posture allowing you to better focus on the way you hold your brush and execute your brush strokes. This is one of the more moderately priced brush racks we carry for our customers but a model we like because of its simplicity. Our clients often buy it in a bundle with May's Painting Cards when practicing Ink and Wash Painting.
