Acrylic colour on unbleached 300gms American unbleached raw paper, acid free, 22 x 30 in., 56 x 76 cm
The beauty in these older buildings is in the old windows and the seeming random design from one shophouse to the next. And they tend to make a good painting. Most of my previous paintings of this subject were done on the handmade parchment type paper. This time I’m using a more regular watercolour paper, 300gm, raw… which makes it fairly absorbent. It also has a fairly mat finish which blends interestingly with the brilliance of the colours. It is also a refreshing change for me. I’m told this american unbleached paper is no more. I am using up the last of some old stock of this nice paper here.The close up picture allows you to get a better sense of the texture and brush stroke of this painting. Then there’s the work in progress. And that’s me holding up the painting for perspective.
Watermark is on the photo only, not on the painting.

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