Peters Art Supplies Online Shop: Inks in black and in beautiful colors
The ink painting or ink drawing as a painting or drawing technique is applied in colored or black ink with a brush or a pen on paper or silk. A wide range of inks exist in different colors. However, traditionally-oriented artists renounce color and use only black ink. Tradional black-on-white ink drawing evolved from the Chinese calligraphy. Today's artists often disregard this tradition, working with shellac- or waterbased bright colors to produce colored ink paintings and drawings.
