Monks on Morning alms round, Thailand, 1999,
pen & ink on textured handmade thai mulberry paper(kada sa),
8 x 11 in., 20 x 28 cm.
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 tissue paper, solid yet pliable. The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
I can be contacted for commission work of this type.
