Literati painting also known as ink wash painting was invented in East Asia and the Chinese used black ink to perfection. History suggests that the Shan Shui style existed during the 5th century. It was then further developed during the Tang dynasty and Wang Wei is generally credited to taking this process further by applying color to ink paintings. During the Chinese Song Dynasty to the 13th century ink wash painting was further developed into a more polished style. Ink paint is usually used on Japanese washi paper or Chinese xuan paper. Both are very absorbent to the ink and thus a perfect material. Silk has also been used for some ink wash paintings. Mainly used in China, Korea and Japan this technique has also gained popularity in the Western World and many modern artists use this ancient technique for their artworks.
