I was stuck at this letter for like a long time. Finally when I could think no more and my mind was cloudy from over thinking and under sleeping, I asked my husband to try and find some interesting things to do with the letter I.
And then I went to sleep.
When I woke up, he was already off to work. But he had ticked the checkbox for ‘I’ on Evernote, and written in front of it, “Ink Painting”.
“What the hell is Ink Painting?”, I asked him over the phone. “I gave you the words, why don’t you go and find out?”
And find out I did.
And then I was zapped.
Ink Painting is a Chinese art of painting with calligraphy brushes and calligraphy ink. With just blue, black and basic colors and strengthening or weakening of the ink, exquisite art pieces are created.
But the more I saw, the more afraid I became. No way was I going to be able to do this.
Then I saw a Bamboo painting. And I knew, I was already in love 🙂
The things I used:
- Drawing sheet
- Black Ink
- A couple of brushes.
- Mixing palette
That’s it. With these things I created my first Bamboo painting. It is something I have wanted to do for a long long time. Finally it came to be.
It may not be perfect. Indeed, it is not.
But I am happy for I have discovered a new art. One which I am eager to pursue further.
Some more pieces of Ink Painting I found online.
I hope you liked Ink Paintings as much as I did. Do try your hand at this art. It is really very very simple, but the finished pieces look beautiful and priceless 🙂
