Rain in a Bamboo Forest

[From 2nd warm-up exercise]

This is the 3rd and final warm-up painting.

I wanted to create a Chinese Painting effect. Didn’t quite make it though. Everything looked too blurry and ill-defined.

In the end, I applied acrylic paints to give a stronger dark tone. Then flicked some green and white paint. That seemed to work. It gave the painting more substance. The blurry background now seemed like some misty backdrop, rather then the previous mass of green stuff.

And so I called it “Rain in a Bamboo Forest”, heh.
