Sumi-e or Chinese brush painting (as it's more commonly known) on rice paper is an unforgiving medium since it captures every single brush stroke put on the paper. A zen-like experience, it requires a centering of the self, a concentration, being in the present moment, some faith and confidence. As you put brush to paper, there's no turning back and no knowing whether the stroke is going to be just right. Was the brush loaded correctly? Is the pressure too much or too little? Does it need just a flick of the wrist or a sweep of the arm? You just have to let go, have fun, and be ready to throw away the messes you create on the journey!
