Bangkok, Urban Moments 2, 2014
acrylic colour on handmade Thai mulberry paper (kada sa), deckled edge, 21 x 31 in., 55 x 77 cm.
I'm most attracted to scenes with busy people spilling onto the roadside. Here there's the people, movement, and a great angle. There will be more 'urban moments' to come...
The paper I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand.. The paper is a thick parchment paper, solid yet pliable. The paper is made to this size to get the unique, uneven deckled edges which adds to the overall textural effect…. Cut away on the print version.
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.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a family portrait, a storyboard collage from a recent travel, event or performance? Contact me.
