The pictures drawn by Sumi (black ink) are generally called ‘Suiboku-ga’ or ‘Sumi-e’ in Japan. It is said that ‘Sumi-e is the most popular way of saying overseas. Sumi-e basically uses only black ink but sometimes uses a little bit of other pigments as well. Sumi-e with other pigments is called Bokusaiga.
