thankyou, thankyou, thank you! that is exactly what I want to bring to the paper! that the most important part of an image, the thing that creates the feeling, take center stage and the rest is just supportive.

happy dance!

Southern, I am happy to supply a copy, or maybe the original. the image is about 7 by 10 inches or a bit smaller.

that painting is done in ink wash. I use sumi ink. it's usually used for Chinese or Japanese caligraphy. it comes in a hard "cake", which you grind on an inkstone and dilute to the darkness you want. then, I use layer upon layer, building up from lightest to darkest. it's on watercolor paper, not rice paper. the ink is not exactly black, but rather a more charcoal color.
