In Chinese brush painting categories, 白描 (bái miáo) is line drawing in ink and brush style. 白描 is a subcategory of Chinese brush painting and its techniques are related to brushstrokes in Chinese calligraphy.

In most situations, we use pine soot ink for Chinese calligraphy and oil soot ink for Chinese brush painting. In ancient times, using oil soot ink for Chinese calligraphy may be considered unacceptable and impolite and was forbidden for writing government documents presented to the emperors of China.

The Chinese figure drawing at 4:20 was drafted first with charcoal and then sketched with oil soot ink.
