"Awareness" Sumi-e bamboo painting on paper by 


From my ‘Beauty of Bamboo’ series.

Featured in “Impressionistic Art”.

“Awareness” is an original wash bamboo painting on textured cream colored heavy stock paper.

A combination of materials was used; acrylic paint and ink brush pen. I also used my fingers and hands to move the paint. It feels good and creates an interesting effect.

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

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. Since they are growing up, I have more time to myself which I enjoy channeling into my drawing and painting.

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.

    Aloha Rebecca, the colours are beautiful and the creme coloured negative space is wonderful as well. I especially love the organic colours swirled about so freely yet with great control, revealing just a subtle hint of the form of the bamboo. It is lovely.

  • thank you, Sharon. I had lots of fun with this one. I used my hands and fingers as well as a brush and pen.
