Real people in rough lines and colours. I hope the textures is what stands out. Here I’m looking for body language and a few strong lines… the rest merging into the textured background. Ok, anyone out there want their portrait done?!
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 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 feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting. 3rd picture is the work in progress.
Please note that you can purchase in one order up to 6 paintings of this same size (small painting category) or smaller to be included in the same 1 shipping fee.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, or a family portrait? Contact me.
