Artist's description:

I have been wanting to do more orchid small paintings for some time now. Here the subject is really the close up on the petals. Strong colours, good contrast to capture the certain quality that flower petals have. Tricky on this paper, but nice when it works out.
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 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 feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage of flowers, or a corner from your garden? Contact me.
Please note that you can purchase in one order up to 6 paintings of this same size (small painting category) or smaller to be included in the same 1 shipping fee.
