Artwork description:

acrylic colour on thai handmade mulberry paper(kada sa) , deckled edge, 10 x 13.5 in., 25 x 34 cm
Figure work. A project doen a few years back, and I finally got to redo the photo. This project is inspired from one of my sketches based on a picture somewhere. Here I am looking for thick colour, pasty. It works so well on this parchment type paper.
I occasionally like to return to this traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. It’s 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. Then there’s the work in progress.
Slowly I am reaching into my trunk full of sketches, organizing them, uploading, and reworking them into paintings, such as this one.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe an expressive portrait? Contact me.

About framing.
When considering framing bear in mind to not cover up the deckled edges. This is one of the specialties of the painting, one of its charms. It is best displayed framed with a cut mat board around the painting so as not to cover the edges, thereby putting some space between the art and the glass and bringing depth to the framed art. It can also be framed simply with backing board and pressed with glass over the front without causing damage.
Please note for the print the deckled edges have been cropped away.
