Tree trunk, Endau Rompin Park, June 2004,
acrylic colour on handmade thai mulberry paper(kada sa), 8 x 11 in., 20 x 28 cm.

The painting is inspired by scenes I see in tropical rain forests. In this case I went on an excursion to one of the National parks here in Malaysia. I equipped myself with pencils and paper. The rest was done in studio...

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, 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 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.
