A real time painting of a Koi

Carp, Koi, sumi-e

A bit of fun! Try it!


Sumi- e Ink technique…  This is almost ten minutes  long because its painted in real time. If you want to see how the ink stone works it shows the artist drawing the brush across the stone to gather the ink on the brush hairs, uses water only sparingly and paints in a one stoke method that is favored by decorative artists the world over.  Many of these brushes are made from Goat hair and once wet are rather floppy.
