Artist's description:

Peranakan Houses, Cairnhill rd,Singapore,
This kind of classic building, similar to the ‘shop house’, can be found in a small, exclusive part of Singapore. It's an amazing architectural style, and here is an early attempt to represent this, done back when I was residing in that city. There is also
an ink version of this item posted here on artfinder.
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. 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 of the paper and brush strokes of the painting.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a historical landmark, your home , a storyboard collage from a recent travel, or event? Contact me.

Please note that you can purchase in one order up to 6 paintings of this same size (small painting category) or smaller to be included in the same 1 shipping fee.
