“*Bamboo Night is Part of the “Tropics” Collection*…


Watercolour on Fabriano Artistico Hot Pressed Paper..

The aura of bamboo grove by night is charming to behold,
The moon peeks thru the leaves painting the grove in silhouette and silvery shadows,
The trees resonate with the heartbeat of romance,
Each knot feels like the ladder to advance to the higher level of ecstasy of love
. J.Narain..

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    The bamboo plants bend and sway during windy days,
    shows how to be strong and flexible in stormy days.
    It is the idol of survival in tough and blistery weather,
    It graciously gives way to sprouts to prosper in its withering days

    Janis..your colours are just spectacular ..you just keep getting better and better with this amazing work that you do..seriously the colours are wonderful..you’re a very talented lady!

  • I paint in all kinds of styles Catherine..this colourful one harks back to paintings I did in the past, (you can see them on my early pages here), but then later on, I toned down the colour a bit….now I’ve put it back again….
    However, tomorrow you might see something totally grey or sepia or black and white…it depends on the series I’m painting and my mood…
    I’m glad you like my current genre, and hope you will still like my work, even if I suddenly decide to drop all the colour and do only charcoal or something… :)))

    Splendid creation! being one of my favorite plants, never thought they could have been presented in such a nice and artistic way. Thanks for sharing. Truely love this.

  • Welcome to my pages Danilo…I have not seen bamboo for many years, so I had to really think hard as I was painting to bring back the memories…I really enjoyed painting it and plan to do many more versions as I continue with the series…I’m so pleased you like the painting…thank you so much.

    Janis…keep them coming…I love these shots

  • Thank you so much Bill, for all your lovely comments on my paintings…although I do have other tropical paintings posted on RB, this series will be a bit different, as I plan to paint a lot up close to the subject, the way I’ve done here…so I consider it to be a whole new series…
