This is an early attempt to work with the subject of architecture, classic buildings. The textured paper adds to the old world charm in the painting. I think this building is no more in the ever changing Singapore
This painting is on Thai handmade mulberry paper in 11.5 x 13.5 inches, deckled edges
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.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, scenery, your favourite architecture? Contact me.
