Sumi-e, day 9 #Inktober

My feeble try at Sumi-e inkig technique. I lack the determinedness of making those confident brushstrokes, especially at the leaves. I know it comes from unending training to make these strokes (I once secretly observed a Chinese man in our Hotel in Hangzhou, making 5 training strokes on cheap paper next to him before turning to the proper sheet. It was genuine, he was alone, no audience). But hey, I'm western, I don't have that patience.
