watercolour wash # 61 - sumi-e + pouring


"bamboo"
watercolour wash # 61
sumi-e + pours 

.......as part of the 100 washes challenge  we were asked if we would like to create 10 washes with a Japanese theme ..I've started looking at  and practicing  "sumi-e" brushstrokes ... instead of using ink and rice paper ..I've used  black ivory and watercolour paper ...posting sumi-e iii  bamboo  .. after masking I added 2 pours of sap green and cyan  .. I posted the steps on challenge http://onehundredwashes.blogspot.com/.... I've started looking at various books and videos wondering if  anyone  can recommend a good book or video on "sumi-e " ?
