    These white marks make me think of being negatives of experiments with the sumi painting brushes. I do like the horizontal interruptions of the verticals. This one I could live with and get much visual pleasure from over a long time! Nice!!! G

      Thanks, Gabi! I must admit that I don’t even know what sumi brushes are. Will have to educate myself! Glad you like this one 🙂

    The brushes I am referring to are the Japanese calligraphy brushes which go to a fine point when loaded, but hold a lot of ink – the marks they make are thin to thick to thin, depending on the pressure from the wrist – in fact a whole vocabulary of marks are possible with practice. I am not sure what they are actually called, but they are also used for sumi-e painting along with hake brushes and others of varying girths. . Actually a lot of fun to use and experiment with. The American painter, Mark Tobey, made use of them in his “white writing” abstractions, which are truly beautiful to see. G
