Album leaf: Three Fish
A great part of Chinese painting is subtlety. The taste for the understated results in a great deal of suggested elements in Chinese painting. The fish in this work are suggested by a minimum of brush stroke, and their habitat is suggested merely by a few bubbles and some kelp. Ink is very versatile in that it can be thinned to the palest grey, or used full strength for opaque black.
