"Rainbow Bamboo Forest" Watercolor Bamboo Painting by 

Original painting; watercolor markers and dry brush pen combination on cream colored textured paper.

I am inspired by the elegance and simplicity of japanese ‘sumi-e’ and chinese ‘shui-mo hua’ paintings.

This ‘one stroke style’ painting is from my ‘Beauty of Bamboo’ series. The bamboo is a magnificent gift from nature.

Bend with the wind,
grow with ease,
reach for the heavens,
embrace the sun.

- Rebecca Rees

I studied illustration and design at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. I am married and the mother of two wonderful boys; one is a college graduate and the other is currently attending college.

I am inspired by the elegance and simplicity of japanese ‘sumi-e’ and Chinese ‘shui-mo hua’ painting. I love the grace and beauty of bamboo.
