Ink wash painting is originally from China and it was introduced to Japan and they developed their own style. On the cartridge sheet you can paint the flowers, abstract and landscape with the technique of shading and pressure within a single brushstroke. Let’s experience this together!
Paintings in black ink are called sumie in Japan. Sumie basically uses only black ink. Sumie uses various techniques of shading and gradation. Shading and gradation can be obtained through changing the amount of water added to the ink.
Sumie is that space is as important or perhaps more important than the objects. It is so-called “the beauty of blank space”. In Sumie, the white space or “emptiness” completes the painting. Sumie is an art deeply rooted in Zen, embodying many of the tenets of the Zen finding beauty in blank space.
