Artist's description:

I wanted bold strokes for this idea. Wild orchids in the forest tend to look rather rough and this may have been well captured here.
The painting is inspired by the orchids growing in my collection. 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 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 feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.

Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage of flowers, or a corner from your garden? Contact me.
