I’m a regular visitor to Bangkok, and I always find the temple architecture there mesmerizing .Thai temples tend to be so ornate. I'm never sure how to approach this subject. This is again on my 10 x13 inch handmade thai paper. Painting on this paper is like painting on tissue paper. It gets wet very quickly then takes long to dry. So I can work one or two areas on the paper then I plan other pictures or go off to do something else...
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 paper, solid 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 better feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
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.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, your house or street? Contact me.
