Description - The Art and Technique of Sumi-e Japanese Ink Painting by Kay Morrissey Thompson
The art of sumi-e, which literally means "ink picture", combines calligraphy and ink-painting to produce brush painting compositions of rare beauty. Today the artistry of sumi-e can be admired in books, reproductions and museums, but the techniques of the art have been much less accessible. This book is the product of the author's study with her teacher, Ukai Uchiyama, master calligraphist and artist. It contains extensive explanations of technique as well as detailed painting instructions and diagrams.
