Painting is inspired by my time spent in Myanmar. More precisely the time spent visiting monks & monasteries there.
The rest is an exercise in colours, especially in the orange and folds of the robes, and a sense of the outdoors.
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 paper, strong yet pliable. 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 has me holding the painting for perspective.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, scenery or a family portrait? Contact me.
