Additional Information

Suiboku-ga, also called Sumi-e, Japanese monochrome ink painting, a technique first developed in China during the Sung dynasty (960–1274) and taken to Japan by Zen Buddhist monks in the mid-14th century. I normally use Chinese or Japanese inks for my paintings in this style then scan them for enlargement and printing. Some 12 or more will be seen subsequently but I am presuming your interest of course. This example is of special interest. As you can see it is the ninth in a series. Black ink has not been used. I am responsible for displaying it but not the execution of it. The author would prefer to remain anonymous [for the present.] There are clues to the identity in the title and in the image. So, how was it done? Remember: There is treasure everywhere. . Stretcher not included. Packed and posted in mailing tube.
