I find Bangkok to be a place of great contrasts. Here I focus on a typical small lane scene which is in such contrast to the overwhelming busy boulevards. This is a small painting representing a serene scene by a temple entrance…. in the heart of the city.
The paper I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. It’s a 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 has me holding up the painting for perspective.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, your neighborhood or street? Contact me.
