Size and Specifications
Green Bus, mini bus in Bangkok , April 2010
acrylic color on handmade thai mulberry paper(kada sa), deckled edge,
8 x 11 in., 20 x 28 cm.
Bangkok has so many different bus companies running the same public transport routes and all over. The mini 'green' bus is a classic. Originally a clean mini bus with sound system blaring, over time they started to look ever more run down and basic. Shortly after I finally got around to painting my impression of this typical Bangkok scene … these buses were taken off the road! Another line of mini buses has since replaced them.
I use a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. It's 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.

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.
