Ink and paper

I am stuggling with painting these days. I am working on two big paintings, 150x200 cm each, but as I am not used to such a big format I seem to get lost on the canvas. And my mind and my hands do not seem to cooperate either. In my mind I want to express a calmness, but my hands are filled with so much energy and impatience that the opposite of calmness - chaos! - is what I am left with. :) So, today I have been working with ink and paper and made quick sketches instead, just for the satisfaction of getting some kind of results! I wonder if perhaps ink and paper, monoprints and things in the direction of chinese caligraphy tecniques could be something I should have a closer look at.
