Japanese ink painting, or sumi-e, is a traditional art form that has been practiced in Japan for centuries. It is characterized by its use of black ink and a blank canvas, which is used to capture the timeless beauty and complexity of the natural world. The simplicity of sumi-e is considered to be a quintessential aspect of Japanese aesthetics and is said to reflect the Japanese sense of beauty, which values simplicity and restraint.
Sumi-e is usually created spontaneously, without interruption or revisions, which is known as "one-stroke painting" this is due to the fact that the ink dries quickly and it's hard to correct mistakes. The total mindfulness and commitment required to create a sumi-e painting is strongly associated with Zen Buddhist practice. Many famous Zen masters such as Hakuin Ekaku were accomplished sumi-e painters, and their work reflects the deep spiritual and philosophical connection between Zen Buddhism and the art of sumi-e.
