Ink wash painting is a traditional style of painting in which the brush must be mixed with a precise amount of ink and water to create the desired lines and shading on the absorptive xuan paper. The amount of water is all-important: it affects the thickness of lines, as well as the tint and size of a shaded area (created by one or more blots or stains known as washes). Too much or too little–even the slightest amount–will ruin the piece.
