Size and Specifications
Acrylic colour on handmade Thai mulberry paper (kada sa), deckled edge, 21 x 31 in., 55 x 77 cm.
The two things that drew me to this scene are the body language of the lady on the right and the outpouring of food items which makes up the foreground of this scene. For those not too familiar with Thai foods…. In the foreground are laid out the ingredients for papaya salad (somtam) including crab, tomatoes, long beans, etc. Sharing the back half of the table is a woman selling strawberries. This is another moment captured at Jatujak weekend market in Bangkok.
I have left this painting more bare than usual. There are plenty visible pencil lines that form part of the background crowd for that sketching feeling and contrasts nicely with the more embellished subject . There is plenty of bare paper as well, so one can see the parchment type paper, unbleached, slightly textured.
The paper I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. It is a thick parchment 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 pictures are 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, me with the painting for perspective, and the photoshoot .
