Class Details: Sumi-e means black ink painting. Using black ink and creating a white space on the paper, you will paint spontaneously to capture the spirit of nature. The focus of the art of sumi-e painting is on the quality of the line and the brush stroke to capture the forms of nature. In this introductory class I will demonstrate the techniques of sumi-e paintings and you will practice and create a sumi-e landscape painting. I will give individual instruction, tips and ideas.
All materials will be supplied.
Please bring with you:
Two jars for water
Three or four small white ceramic dishes for ink mixing. (Ramekin/soufflé dishes work best!)
A roll of paper towels!
Two small objects to use as paper weights.
If you have a photograph of a particular landscape that you love, please bring it with you! I will also have landscape photographs for you to use as reference.
