Artist's description:

One more pen & ink sketch from Mersing, Malaysia!
This goes way back to my early days of visiting Malaysia. Mersing is a known quaint seaside town known mainly as a launching pad for the nearby islands. Many times I have visited there, and really fell in love with the place. It has also inspired many of my paintings and sketches.
This simple black & white ink sketch 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.

Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, your house or street? Contact me.
