Artist's description:

acrylic colour on thai handmade mulberry paper(kada sa) , deckled edges, 10.5 x 14 in., 27 x 36cm
Every now and again I decide to work on this amazing thick parchment paper. Here I just want to work with the blotter effect and a contrasting white/skin tones. Subject is taken from one of my many, many sketches.
The paper is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. It’s a thick parchment like 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 get a better feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting. Then there’s the work in progress.

About framing.
When considering framing bear in mind to not cover up the deckled edges. This is one of the specialties of the painting, one of its charms. It is best displayed framed with a cut mat board around the painting so as not to cover the edges, thereby putting some space between the art and the glass and bringing depth to the framed art. It can also be framed simply with backing board and pressed with glass over the front without causing damage.
