Artist's description:

'Atap' is a malay word for roof, usually referring to traditional thatch, or straw roof. This semi abstract painting is a play on color, especially the 'atap' roof in the foreground. The unbleached rice paper brings a textural quality and daintiness to the piece. This is a juxtaposition of abstract and green turned into mountains, suggestive of rural village set in the hills.
The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
My paintings in that period were done on location, without preliminary sketches nor any working lines on the paper. This is paint applied directly on a blank page.

Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a scenery, a storyboard collage from a recent travel? Contact me.
