This composition is based on photos I took at Jatujak week end market, Bangkok's massive outdoor market. This time I wanted to capture the amazing clutter and congestion in the tight inside lanes of that market.
There are so many more of these ideas from this massive market I want to put to paper….….
The paper I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. It is 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 better feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
I include here an interesting snapshot of the painting in its early stages in my cramped studio room.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel? Contact me.
