Oh, and as a little history, Sumi-e developed in China during the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Wang Wei is generally credited as the painter who applied color to existing ink and wash paintings[1]. The art was further developed into a more polished style during the Song Dynasty (960-1279). It was introduced to Japan in the mid-14th century by Zen Buddhist monks and grew in popularity until its peak during the Muromachi period (1338-1573).
