The technique has been known since the 13th-century when Chinese artists used transparent ink washes to create delicate atmospheric effects. The line-and-wash technique became familiar to European artists during the Renaissance in the early 15th century. Cennino Cennini taught pen drawing enhanced by brushwork.

Colour is Interconnected with all other Senses.
One of my greatest joys was having blind children visit my Buninyong Gallery. They came so that I could give them paintings to feel and for the chat I'd give on sharing how they might understand colour.
Lemon colour is fresh like the smell of lemons. Lime is a vibrant, bright green, smell the lime leaves and imagine the colour lime. Violet is soothing and restful—smell the lavender and imagine violet. Emotions smell and colour all interconnected. Red, the healing colour, the colour of oxygenated healthy blood, feel the warmth of a fire and think of flickering interactions of red, orange, yellow, with white-hot core, white also for purity, swell the delicate fragrance of a white rose, and grief—smell the lily. The blue-greys in the smoke, as the heat cools—move from sunshine into shadow and imagine the colours changing from the hot colours to the cooler blues, blue-green and blue-violet. Move deeper into the shade, fool yourself becoming cooler, and imagine those cool colours becoming darker.
I could get carried away talking about colour to people who also love the subject. I loved reaching to responsive students.
