Illustrations For The Beyond Within
These are illustrations by Lu Kesi for the first edition of the book The Beyond Within: the Downtown Dao of Lan Su Chinese Garden by Daniel Skach-Mills. There are additional illustrations in the book not shown here. Since all illustrations in the book are in black and white, all color was removed along with any text and seals. On page 46 I used the top part of the painting for the mountain range and on page 70 I used the bottom section of the same painting. On page 123 I used a picture of a gourd and superimposed in Photoshop the two figures seen inside it in the book (since I had the two seperate images it was quicker and easier for me to do this rather than repaint it as one whole). Images are not to scale.
