I just couldn't help doing this painting. To me this is overflowing with humor. Inspired from ‘sunkiss’s photos. Thanks!
This one has quite a 'noisy' background. And I feel I've managed to steer away from falling into illustration mode in favour of splashing colours, out of which the subject is formed. Somewhat tricky on this parchment paper.
My paper is a traditional handmade mulberry paper made in Thailand. Mulberry leaves are used there to feed the silkworm in the silk industry, the sticks used to make the paper. The paper is a thick parchment type 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 better 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 or event, portrait? Contact me.
