Today I attended a brief workshop in "sumie", the Japanese style of black ink painting. Like last time, I just used a regular watercolour brush and acrylic paint. But, inspired as I was, I just ordered two synthetic calligraphy brushes. And tomorrow I'll experiment with making my own vegan ink!
If you ever get the opportunity to try sumi-e, do, because it is truly the most relaxing thing I've ever experienced - even a failed painting turns into nothing more than an inspiration to make another, a better one.
