Size and Specifications
Here I decided the orchid should be on a fairly blank background to allow the texture of the paper to stand out.
On the blooms I used strong colours, good contrast to capture the certain quality that flower petals have. Tricky on this paper, but nice when it works out.
Acrylic colour on handmade Thai mulberry paper (kada sa), deckled edge, 10x 13 in., 29 x 34 cm.
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 type 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.
Thanks Siam for the wonderful photos of your Cattleya orchids!
Watermark is on the photo only, not on the painting.
