Sumi-e painting evolved in the 5th century from Chinese calligraphy. The main subjects are taken from nature. In the 12th century Zen monks brought the technique to Japan where even today Sumi-e painting has a decisive influence on lifestyle. Translated “Sumi” means “black ink” and “e” means both “path” and “painting”. The style of brush painting is both a simple and yet highly aesthetic drawing made of powerful, mostly chasing and rapidly executed lines.

Patience and inner harmony are essential in brush painting to capture the spirit of the subject. Sumi-e is therefore not only an Asian painting technique but also a form of spiritual relaxation therapy and is becoming increasingly popular in Europe.

Recommended Paper
For the first time Hahnemühle has developed a special paper for the Japanese Sumi-e painting technique that is capable of meeting the strenuous requirements of the Sumi-e technique. It is extremely thin but nevertheless absorbent and allows the water to flow further than the ink. This permits sharp outlines but also delicate drawings. The pen strokes are more visible. Sumie-e paper is available in pads and sheets.
