Painting - Sumi Painting On Xuan Paper
This painting is done with Chinese ink on xuan paper (also called rice paper though it is not made of rice). The difference between xuan paper and watercolour paper is that it is very thin, and absorbs water right away. With this unforgiving type of paper, the brush strokes have to be very fastand mistakes cannot be masked. I have wasted a lot of xuan paper along the paper, but it's fun and challenging.
