Paintings in Foreign Environments - The Old Bangkok City Wall
An old Thai castle
Chinese ink on rice paper
27.6 x 38.1 cm
While I was in Bangkok in the early 1950's, there was a remaining stretch of an old city wall in that city (I wonder whether it is still there?). I had used the Chinese brush and ink painting technique to paint it as it was then. Unexpectedly I found a photograph of it in an old album. It made me think of the Chinese monogram painting, i.e. to paint using Chinese ink only with no color added.
For people who appreciate Chinese brush and ink painting, it will be interesting to take a look. And perhaps even try painting what you see on untreated Chinese painting paper. Doesn't this painting use the same skills and techniques as those for theHuang Yao, Moyuan Suibi, 1982
