This is a small version of 'Wild Undergrowth' done before the bigger painting. The pen work gives the piece its blend of sketch and painting.
Inspired from an amazing old tree that used to be in front of the Singapore museum, in the parking area... it's gone now.
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. To add to the textural effect I used textured paper. The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a 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.
Packaging for my small paintings like this one is sealed in plastic sleeve, sealed in a padded hard plastic file case, and envelope covering.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a garden or nature scene, a storyboard collage from a recent travel? Contact me.
