Artist's description:

Acrylic colour on Fabriano cold pressed watercolour paper 22 x 30 inches.
Another of those amazing and amusing sights in Bangkok. I’ve long been attracted to the sight of this, the dynamics. Trading in religious amulets seems a big business. And there’s a crazy display of amulet vendors lined up on the sidewalk along the main road leading to the weekend market. There’s a certain look about them, sitting on their low stool at their low tables with their selection of little stone, cement, or brass Buddhist icons. Here I mix that look, those postures, with a generous spray of colours.
The close up picture is of higher resolution to give a better sense of the paint, paper and the brush stroke. Then there’s the work in progress.
I also show a small ink painting I did on this subject back in 1999, also available for sale.
Then there’s me at home holding up the painting for perspective. There is also a photo showing the typical scene of the amulet vendors on the roadside nearing the weekend market in Bangkok.

Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Contact me.
