Sumi Ink Painting on Rice Paper – Framed

These sumi inks on rice paper were painted on location. The ink is brushed on with bamboo brushes. The grayed tones are ink diluted with water. It takes a great deal of skill and concentration as the washes and brush strokes take precision and control but the most successful ones will have running and blurring effects. I love to compose with what I see and feel the linear quality going through my eye, brain to my hand.

Each tree is individual and grows as it does from forces of light and water and who is crowding it. These are lucky to have a river to lean into.
