Info: Thick Ma Paper

NW Seascape Rambling
Sumi-e by Casey Shannon
14 x 15 Sumi (Ink) on Ma Paper

I wanted to show you a painting created on a different kind of Ma. This sumi-e was created on the thickest of the Ma or Hemp papers. It has the elegant off white color with the paper fibers showing here and there. This makes for a lovely texture. This is a semi-sized paper and some ink painters call this paper "slow". You do not need to paint as quickly as you do when painting on Xuan paper. Your brush strokes can be made slower and still have quality results. I have found this paper is great for landscapes. It is too thick for mounting into a scroll. However it can be framed beautifully.
