Traditional Chinese painting

Chinese painting, also known as brush painting or ink-wash painting, is one of the oldest art forms in the world.

Also, the tools and media employed by the artists of traditional Chinese painting, such as inksticks, inkstones, rice paper and brushes, are unfamiliar to many Westerners.
