A painting of a scene taken from the movie "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" which is one of the most successful movie about Chinese wuxia, a genre of Chinese fiction.
The protagonist played by Dato' Michele Yeoh was indeed excellent showing her martial art skills with hands and blades.
I highlighted the sword and expression of the actress in this painting with an old Chinese character of 'dragon' in the background. The contrasting black and white background is the balance of 'yin' and 'yang' representing the femininity of the sword-woman with the strength of masculinity and skills of man.
I enjoyed this movie so much that it inspired me to paint as part of my painting collection.
