Artist's description:

acrylic colour on handmade thai mulberry paper, deckled edge, 21 x 31 in., 55 x 80 cm.
I like the dynamic angle and it’s just oh so Malaysian open market, what is called here night market. I went for the bold strokes on this one …. interesting what it does for the old woman on the left. The rest fades behind the overlay of white texture…
Mulberry paper is a traditional 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.

Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a family or other portrait, a storyboard collage from a recent travel, event or performance? Contact me.
