    This unique oriental art called Sumi-e literally means “ink painting”. It was brought to Japan from China during Kamakura period. Sumi-e requires only simple materials such as black ink, water, rice paper, and brushes. These simple materials can be used to produce an infinite variety of tones and dynamic quality of strokes on washi paper. Practicing the basic techniques of Sumi-e brings pleasure and enjoyment to the painter
