Jatujak Weekend Market is a major attraction in Bangkok, Thailand… It is said to be the largest outdoor market in the world. It is certainly busy, crowded, dynamic, animated. It is also gentle and friendly. I find the place very inspiring for painting ideas.
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 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.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, or a family portrait? 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.
