Ink and Wash (aka line and wash) is a fun way to quickly sketch a landscape scene or a street scene, or in this case, food. It can be as detailed or as loose as you want it to be. It can be just a few quick squiggles or lines to give the suggestion of a person, place, or thing. The idea is get something down on paper quickly and have it look effortless, opposed to labored. The wash part of the technique requires more water in the paint mix and then a series of drying and then laying down more wash to create a layered look to go from light to dark.
