Phal. equestris 2014
acrylic colour on thai handmade mulberry paper(kada sa) , deckled edges,
10 x 13.5 in., 25 x 34 cm
This Phalaenopsis orchid species seems a popular plant among collectors. I'm impressed by the small size of the plant and the spray of flowers… and here I really 'sprayed' the flowers all over the place!
Too often flowers are presented in illustration form. Here I have gone the other way quite completely. This one is about brush strokes, abstract, mood… and a batik quality to the painting.
The paper I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. Mulberry leaves are used there to feed the silkworm in the silk industry, the sticks used to make the paper. The resulting paper is a thick parchment like paper, strong yet pliable. I have the paper made to this size to get the deckled edges which adds to the textural effect. The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
