This scene is quite typical of Bangkok lanes. People walking, a temple, the wires, and a parked car in the mix, are all very typical of lanes in that city.... as is this tunnel view flanked by walls on both sides... the apartments.
Scene is actually the lane in Bangkok with the guest house where I stay when I travel there.
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 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.
The third picture is me holding up the painting for a better idea of size.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, your house or street? Contact me. .
