'Melody Underneath The Golden Tree' is the my thesis artwork number 4 after 'The voice of God' which is my thesis artwork number 3
The sketch above is one of my objects in the painting. About the method of my painting, at first I would sketch any objects to be the good structure follow the traditional Thai design. Then I would put the detail in any objects to make it finish and ready to paint.
Above : The god was playing a Krabpuang.
Below : The god was playing a Krajabi.
Below : The angel was playing a Saw Sam Sai.
The story in this painting is about the god's performance Thai music charmingly. My inspiration to create this painting came from my favorite activity I usually do when I'm in my free time. It is playing Thai classical music.
In this picture above you would see 4 musical instruments. They are Thai classical instuments which the name from your left to right is Krajabi (look like a guitar), Krabpuang (the smallest in the picture), Saw Sam Sai (Thai fiddle) and Tub or Ton (Thai drum). Krajabi and Saw Sam Sai are for making the melody. Krabpuang and Ton are the percussions.
This is my method to copy the sketch to the canvas.
For this article, I hope you enjoy and get some idea about the traditional Thai painting. Next article I will show you more about my artworks since I was a student in the faculty of fine and applied art, KKU.
Thank you for your attention.
Bye for now.
