Sumi-e ink

DEFINITION

A Japanese word, which when translated to English, means ???ink picture???. It???s an ancient Asian painting style carried out in the fewest possible brush strokes entirely in black ink, with no additional color but often giving the impression of color through manipulation of tone. This aesthetic concept of tonal balance has found powerful applications in contemporary Western painting and other disciplines from photography to graphic design.
