Sumi-e is the ancient art of Japanese brush painting. These evocative paintings, also known as ink pictures, traditionally feature subjects from the natural world such as flowers and birds. Using a minimum of brush strokes to convey the essence of a subject, sumi-e artists create delicate, elegant works of art that are universally appealing. Painting is a form of meditation that brings peace and harmony to the artist. The finished pieces are intended to inspire the same sense of tranquility and joy in the viewer. In The Simple Art of Sumi-e, you'll master all the techniques you'll need to know to create striking paintings and also learn the spiritual aspects of this unique art form. Fifteen lovely projects offer you the chance to put your new skills into practice. Create a set of ceramics decorated with falling leaves; a silk painting of floating flowers in the breeze; chopstick holders decorated with fish, flowers, and birds; a canvas cushion featuring rolling waves; and more. Stunning variations are provided for many of the projects. The Simple Art of Sumi-e includes calligraphic samples of 100 popular Western first names so that you can personalize your work, plus a series of greetings and haikus for you to use in your own projects. You will enjoy learning sumi-e and creating paintings for years to come.

Explore the ancient technique of Japanese ink painting. The art of sumi-e, which literally means "ink picture," combines calligraphy and ink-painting to produce brush painting compositions of rare beauty. This beauty is paradoxical—ancient but modern, simple but complex, bold but subdued—no doubt reflecting the art's spiritual basis in Zen Buddhism. At the same time sumi-e painting is firmly rooted in the natural world, its various techniques serving as the painter's language for describing the wonders of nature. Buddhist priests brought the ink stick and the bamboo-handled brush to Japan from China in the sixth century, and over the past fourteen centuries Japan has developed a rich heritage of ink-painting. Today the artistry of sumi-e can be admired in books, reproductions and museums, but the techniques of the art have been much less accessible. As a result, little information has been available to the inquisitive Western artist attracted to Japanese sumi-e. This book, designed to help remedy that deficiency, is the product of the author's study with her teacher, Ukai Uchiyama, master calligraphist and artist. It contains extensive explanations of technique as well as detailed painting instructions and diagrams.

Sumi-e was brought to Japan by Zen priests in the 13th century and is closely connected to the philosophy of Zen Buddhism. In Zen, truth can be expressed in a single word after hours of meditation, and similarly Sumi-e use a few, highly expressive brush strokes. This book tells you how to use Japanese brush, how to use water and ink on brush, how to begin painting flowers, trees, birds, animals and landscapes, etc. This book shows brush technique for many different flowers trees, birds, cranes, herons, mountains, waterfalls, clouds, etc. This book is for Sumi-e beginner and experienced.
