Watercolor Technique: Chinese Splashing Ink (Po’mo)

Explore the ancient Chinese painting style called Po’Mo, where layers of watercolor are applied to a special shikishi* board and then tipped to give the color direction, energy and notion. Once the painting is dry, areas may be further developed through brushwork. The process is that of “controlled” spontaneity combining wet and dry techniques and abstraction and realism to create expressive landscapes or fully abstract painting. A shikishi is a type of paper board featuring layered rice paper over a metallic gold or silver base. The edges of the board are metallic, as though it has a thin gold or silver frame.
