Ink Wash Painting | 2nd Dec | Workshop | Method Juhu
Ink wash painting, originating in China and later refined in Japan, offers a unique blend of artistry. On cartridge sheets, it enables the creation of intricate floral and abstract designs with a single brushstroke, using shading and pressure techniques. Join us for an immersive Ink Wash Painting workshop, where we'll explore the philosophy of Zen while enjoying a fun and enlightening session.
Japanese black ink paintings, known as "sumie," focus exclusively on black ink but employ various shading and gradation techniques, achieved by adjusting the ink's water content. Sumie, deeply rooted in Zen philosophy, places as much importance on empty spaces as it does on objects, embracing the "beauty of blank space" to complete its compositions.
We invite you to immerse yourself in the contemplative world of Ink Wash Painting through this workshop—a unique opportunity to connect with your philosophical side, drawing inspiration from the Zen tradition.
You will make your own painting using black Indian ink on cartridge sheets.
