Sumi-e is the ancient art of Japanese brush painting. These evocative paintings, also known as ink pictures, traditionally feature subjects from the natural world such as flowers and birds. With this book, you’ll master all the techniques you’ll need to know to create striking paintings and also learn the spiritual aspects of this unique art form. Begins by looking at the “Four Treasures” of sumi-e: paper, brushes, inks, and the ink stone. Describes the brushstrokes and provides step-by-step sequences showing traditional composition techniques. Includes calligraphic samples of 100 popular Western first names so you can personalize your work, plus a series of greetings and haikus for you to use in your own projects. Color illus.
