JAPANESE INK PAINTING

Summi-e is a simple very noble drawing technique consisting of powerful, mostly chasing and quickly thrown in strokes. Sumi-e is not only a painting technique but also a kind of spiritual relaxation therapy. 

I stared helplessly at the paper for quite a while until I dared to slowly try something. Since the painting was on fine rice paper, I only created large stains. After several attempts and without further big considerations, I created this picture.
