It is a colourful ink, and is quite often referred to as India or Chinese ink. Saying that this black ink is colourful may seem counter intuitive. Many art lecturers will tell you that black is the absence of colour. Think about this though... If black absorbs all light and reflects none, why do we see it at all? Black has a purpose, and is often an overlooked colour on the palette, having the ability to give depth in negative spaces and give a richness of life to a work of art.
