Choy Moo Kheong's paintings need warm light to bring out the underlying colours which lend their intensity. The forest scenes of his paintings generally consist of 10 - 15 layers of dilute Translucent colours where he lays the various shades and tones. It is the technique of grazing without the brushing of layer. They are laid (not brushed) arbitrarily in broken layers. This is what brings the variation of tones and colours through different times of the day. A big magnifying glass will show clearly those layered broken colours. It is a different view altogether seemingly without order, yet coming together when viewed as a whole.
