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 that’s 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.
Participate in the Ink Wash Painting workshop to welcome your philosophical side which relates to Zen and yes, have a fun and intriguing session as well.
You will be working with black Indian ink on cartridge sheets.
