Another tree moment… also going back some time, back when I was living in Singapore. Painting is inspired from an amazing old tree that used to be in front of the Singapore museum, in the parking area. But it's gone now. happens a lot 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, strong 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 a heavily textured paper.
Sorry my picture does not show the deckled edges. See the picture of me with the framed painting to get another perspective. The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a garden or nature scene, a storyboard collage from a recent travel? Contact me.
