Artist's description:

Sometimes … Life’s a Beach
Acrylic colour on handmade thai mulberry paper, deckled edge, 21 x 31 in., 55 x 80 cm.
Whatever the pose, body language is always a fascinating subject. It should come as no surprise since it is to me the first and loudest form of communication. The nude as a subject, to me is uncluttered body language and I am looking to draw the body’s expression only. Here I want that body expression in a brown and green contrast with plenty of bold brush strokes.
Here I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. It’s a thick parchment 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. Then there’s the work in progress.

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.
