Sumi paintings of horses

Messing around with Sumi ink on rice paper. It's very unpredictable and one must keep the brush moving contstantly becuase it wicks up the ink the instant you touch the paper. If I get a good one, it's almost by accident. I threw away one or two for every one I decided to keep. Not saying these all are that good or anything, but since I haven't shared anything for ages I thought I'd through out something for entertainment value.

thank you ladies. I tend to not value them very highly because they don't take long to do. I mean , like I said, I have to move quickly. So, it's like "Go! " and the brush whips around the paper, then I think about it a bit, and add a few more things. And if I think about it too much, I end up ruining it. Some are ok, and some have a certain "air" about them that makes them fun to look at.
The problem I 've had is when I mount them onto a heavier paper for matting/framing, I get all these wrinkles and discolorations. I need some Chinese or Japanese artist to show me the correct techniques for doing this.

These are all for sale, by the way.

The size is about 9 by 12? inches.

I can't pick a favorite, I love them all- they have such energy and so much movement and a feeling of life in them, I think they're all beautiful.
