Chao Phraya

Here is my latest painting, this time I have switched to acrylic due to my oils running low on a few key colours. I have painted a view from the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok, inspired by a photo I took back in the 90s.  I find it interesting firstly that people live on rivers, not beside rivers, but on the river. Also, there is such a blatant view of the difference between the rich and the poor. The penthouse suite overlooking the riverside slum neighbourhood.
