Wooden Buddha



I've made a new discovery. Paper that is an actual thin veneer of real cherry wood with a mounted back. Very expensive. Four bucks for an 8 1/2 X 11 inch sheet. I wanted to see what it would be like to draw on. My first attempt on it came out pretty damn good. I will be doing more of these. I found other types of wood paper too. I put this original up for sale in my ETSY store. Get it quick.

I am an admirer of your drawings.
This is a very good idea to draw on this paper rosewood. I did not understand if it was reinforced, rigid or flexible as paper. Why not draw on the plywood against? I already did, but just in pencil. As I am a carpenter, at the time I had a carpentry workshop in Paris. It's great fun to draw on plywood. Obviously one can find all types of wood and all thicknesses. Then the support is presentable enough to be presented as such. There is no need to frame them for display. (You can not expose the paper as it, in my opinion). And it allows great games between multiple panels, for example, be hinged together.
Anyway your drawing makes me want to start again drawing on plywood.

As I already said I'd love to display your drawings in my studio in Paris. I am truly very appreciative of your work. Believe it or not, I do not care,
best regards,
