Os 4 nobres do Sumiê / The 4 gentlemen of Sumi-e

Olá, queridos leitores!
Em uma de minhas últimas postagens eu citei os 4 nobres do Sumiê, então achei melhor mostrá-los.
Normalmente o sumiê é uma arte em branco, preto e tons de cinza, mas gosto de fazê-lo colorido. Nestes cartões eu usei a aquarela gansai.
São estes, na sequência: o bambu, a orquídea selvagem, o galho de cerejeira e o crisântemo.
Estas são as formas básicas e cada uma é um aperfeiçoamento da anterior.
É claro que dentro destas formas básicas há inúmeras variações, de modo que não se pode dizer que domino os 4 nobres, mas os conheço o suficiente para prosseguir.

Hello dear readers!
In one of my last posts I spoke about the 4 gentlemen of Sumi-e, so I thought it would be a good thing to show them.  
Usually Sumi-e is painted in black and shades of gray on a white paper, but I like it better colorful. In these cards Gansai watercolor were used.
So here they are: the bamboo, the wild orchid, the plum branch and the chrisantemum.
They are the basic form and each one is the development of the another.
Of course that there are many many variations of these basic forms so I couldn't say that I master them but I know them enough to go ahead.

  1. The bamboo is still my favorite but I do like the brightness of the chrysanthemum too. I don't blame you for wanting to paint in colors.

    1. Dear Sheila, it is always a joy to read your comments.
      Yes, bamboo is the most popular of the 4 nobles, and it isn't because it is the easier to paint! As I grow up in a rural area of Guarulhos bamboos are part of my childhood. It is so Japanese!! Well all of them are. But I think bamboo are the most.
      Sumi-e is a very dignified art as it is (white paper, black ink and shades of gray) but I have noted that many contemporary artists have been put some other colors in the details.
      I feel that I am very privileged person for affording and have time to learn this art.
      Thanks again!
