Nice... but something about how the bamboos are arranged/painted make the bamboos look like bony fingers. Oh, I think it would be neat if you had made the bamboos like claws threatening the boat in the background... but then this wouldn't be a peaceful/calm image you probably envisioned. I don't like the branches coming out of the bamboo trunks are very light in color (transparent?).

Overall, I like it.

Thanks Mike, I appreciate your kind comments dear friend!

Thanks Jean! It is hard trying to paint as this artist in my book- Lucy Wang.

Dried rice, Thank you. This is a style that is known as Chinese Brush Strokes. You might want to look into this artist. I am just learning and following instructions as to the style. I appreciate your kind comment and opinion.

Marilyn, thanks. I find it so peaceful. I want to try to master this technique digitally.:)

Wherever there is bamboo, there is a bamboo flute :)
The Little Shepherd (小放牛 = Xiǎo fngni) may help set the mood for bamboo painting ...

I enjoyed that very much ChinaPete, so beautiful, thank you!

Cesare....this is so strange...I was going to import my old panda painting and weaken the opacity setting, but changed my mind and tried to paint different parts of the images that she had done in the book.

Tremendous effect. Very well done, Alexandra. Too bad it's not in contention for a postage stamp, eh?

Thank you dearest Albert. I do so love Asian art. I have a lot of it in my home, and with my landscaping I enjoy using this style and methodology.

The fun of zazzle is that you may upload your design to anything you wish as long as it conforms to the correct templates and resolution.
Thank you so much for your kind comment D Akey, I'm so pleased you liked this one. I truly appreciate your input and will upload this one into the stamps as well.
