The western impact was not as strong in Batuan village as it was in Ubud. Batuan paintings were frequently dark, dense depictions of legendary episodes or themes from everyday life, with weird animal monsters and witches accosting people. Gradations of black to white ink washes were put over most of the surface of the Batuan Village paintings to create an impression of darkness and gloom. The designs expanded to fill the entire space in later years, contributing to the crowded aspect of these Balinese paintings.
