Cats to me are like mimes, with lots of body language. And it may be about time I express them on paper… after all, they are always sitting around, posing for me. I am mainly focusing on small paintings, black & white with colour highlights. The effect can be quite dramatic on this parchment paper.
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 like paper, thick, 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. 3rd picture shows the work, or works, in progress. 4th picture is priceless with Sandy, one of the models in the painting , is there looking at the painting.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe something from a recent travel, scenery, your fave pet? Contact me.
