  • Description:

    acrylic colours on handmade thai mulberry paper(kada sa), deckled edges, 10 x 13.5 in, 24 x 35 cm

    More building frontage. This kind of building, the shophouse is a common structure found in South East Asia. The older style as in this painting, are getting less and less. And I do love old architecture … so every now and then I'll do one of these. And every time the brush stroke ends up different, as the total feel, so each one really stands on its own merit. This time I really got into the finesse of it… might come from sitting so close to the paper!, but very true to the actual building, and the texture of the parchment like paper just adds to the mood.
    I use a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. It's a 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 better feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting. Then there's the work in progress, and Me with the painting.

    Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, your house or street? Contact me.

    About framing this painting.
    When considering framing bear in mind to not cover up the deckled edges. This is one of the specialties of the painting, one of its charms. It is best displayed framed with a cut mat board around the painting so as not to cover the edges, thereby putting some space between the art and the glass and bringing depth to the framed art. It can also be framed simply with backing board and pressed with glass over the front without causing damage.
    Please note that you can purchase in one order up to 4paintings of this same size or smaller to be included in the same 1 shipping fee.
