Artist's description:

This goes way back to my early days of visiting Malaysia. Mersing is a known quaint seaside town known mainly as a launching pad for the nearby islands. Many times I have visited there, and really fell in love with the place. It has also inspired many of my paintings and sketches. Here is a humorous look at people and culture.
The simple black & white ink sketch has a mood that colour paintings don’t capture, and allows the texture of the paper to stand out.
The paper I use is a traditional handmade mulberry paper from 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 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 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 from a recent travel, or a portrait? Contact me.
Take a glimpse into this artist, and how step by step I build my paintings at my ‘building a painting’ and other albums at the following link:
Packaging for my small paintings like this one is sealed in plastic sleeve, sealed in a padded hard plastic file case, and envelope covering.
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.
