The painting is inspired by typical scenes I see in Bangkok , I place I regularly return to. As the title suggests, this idea is based on Jatujak weekend market, said to be the largest market of its kind.
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 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 from a recent travel, scenery or a family portrait? Contact me.Take a glimpse into this artist, and how step by step I build my paintings at my ‘building a painting’ and other albums at the following link:
