Dan Colvin in Painting, Sumi

I'm also adding the Sumi Art Gallery to show some of Sumi styled work I've done in the last few years.


Inkwell's Lilac Nose, Detail , 2006, Acrylic Paint and Sumi ink on mulberry paper

I love the immediacy and energy that abounds in painting in this style. The pieces happen very quickly and I don't always have a very specific plan for where I'm going with the images. I'll make a few strokes and find that a floral piece suddenly wants to become a nude or vice versa.
