Indian – ink drawing

This drawing is a script of the artist who has to be careful about the pressure on the brush soaked with ink. The way of leading the brush is a mirror to character and decisiveness of the author more than any other technique. The look of the drawing depends on many aspects like the position of fingers, wrist, arm, the pressure on the brush and quickness of moving. Especially the holding of the brush is important and is distinguished in west and east kind of ink drawing. In the west there is the tendency to hold the brush as a pen. In the east the brush is held upright to horizontal base. In this case thumb and middle finger hold the penholder very firmly so the movement of other fingers is possible in every direction.

Traditional material for ink drawing is Chinese hard ink which is spread at special stone together with water. Although this is the most favourite and most traditional tool for ink drawing, we are offered another possibilities as well. For example inks, aquarell, acrylic colour or even oil colours.
