How to draw goldfish with sumi ink.
Sumi-e is kind of vague art. You don’t seek the reality as much as 3D motion pictures do like "Beowolfe". Sumi-e art has its own way to come across the actual fish, flower or animals. The way for it is omitness. When you see paintings, you figure out what it is with the reflection of your memory which you have seen. Each memory of goldfish would be different one another, so the omitness would show up different on the paper. My memory of goldfish is red and gold bodh and a long tail fin. I exggerate that part and omit to depict other part. If it still looks goldfish to you, it would be succesful. Sumi-e is not the mirror art at what you see, but the talking with your mind art. You don’t need mind your goldfish looks like others, just listen your mind and take a stroke.
