This one is based on an amazing photo I took long ago of this woman and her dogs. A remarkable situation. And finally a painting has come of it.
Acrylic on handmade Thai mulberry paper (kada sa), deckled edge, 21 x 31 in., 55 x 77 cm.
My paper is a traditional handmade mulberry paper made in Thailand. The paper is a thick parchment type 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 better feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting. Then there's the work in progress, then me with the painting for a perspective shot.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel or event, portrait? Contact me.
