The Siamese fighting fish. To me they represent a unique aquatic body language. Here I want to capture the movement, done with spilt paint, in an abstract way…
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 something from a recent underwater travel, scenery, your fave pet, aquarium or goldfish? Contact me.
