Japanese Ink Wash Technique

Japanese Ink Wash Technique

Known as sumi-e (black ink painting) in Japanese, it is a painting technique that uses black ink in water in varying concentrations to produce a semi-transparent wash. The technique was originally developed in East Asia and introduced to Indian painters, through the Tagore family, by Japanese artist Okakura Kakuzō and his disciples in the early twentieth century.
