The basic ink paintings are usually water and ink paintings in black and white. Advanced ink paintings or so called coloured ink paintings comprise meticulously painted colourful flowers and birds. In Chinese painting, ink is the main raw material, the amount of water is cited as thick ink, light ink, dry ink, wet ink and determine different shades of grey to black creating an”Ink Rhyme”.
