This one is part of a series of black & whites I did when I was living in Singapore.
This one is inspired by the club and pub scene I was sketching and painting at that time. It was all an exciting art exercise surrounded by good people and good music.
I believe this pub still stands there today as it is located in an amazing little heritage nook off Orchard rd in Singapore.
There is a matching painting of the outside of this place.
The simple black & white has a special mood that colour paintings don’t capture, and allows the texture of the paper to stand out.
The paper I use is a traditional handmade mulberry paper from 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.
Please allow 3 days for processing.
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.
Packaging for my small paintings like this one is sealed in plastic sleeve, sealed in a padded hard plastic file case, and envelope covering.
