Tiger drawing ... Sumi-e style

Ink and wash painting is an East Asian type of brush painting. It is also known as wash painting, by its Chinese name mo-shui or by its Japanese names, suibokuga or sumi-e. Only black ink - the same as used in East Asian calligraphy — is used, in various concentrations.

Wash painting developed in China during the Tang Dynasty (618-907) and became an established 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).
