"Lilac Bamboo Forest" Original ink and wash chinese brush painting by 


“Lilac Bamboo Forest” is an original ink and wash painting. Including the border, it measures 8-1/2″ × 11″ and is on heavy stock, textured white paper.

I bought some new inks from Paris. This piece is painted with a purple ink wash and also a light lavender and dark purple ink brush pen. This bamboo painting is monochromatic…which means various shades of the color purple.

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