White Crane Chasing Crabs Watercolor Painting Printable Art
- Watercolor on traditional Vietnamese handmade paper -
This is a print of a white crane chasing crabs watercolor painting.
I had the idea for this painting when this was the last paper I had left and it has a hole in the middle of the paper. Then I decided to use this hole to paint something fun. The small crab in the painting actually is trying to run into its nest, which is the hole of the paper.
White crane was once a popular species in South East Asia and East Asia, however, with industrialization, deforestation and pollution, they gradually disappear.
Depending on regions, it also can be called heron or egret.
This painting was painted on a traditional handmade paper in Vietnam called "dó" - trees that only grow in Vietnam. The process to make this type of paper has lasted for hundreds if not thousand years and it is somehow similar to the traditional paper-making process in East Asian Countries.
The natural textures and colors of the painting, which are retained completely in the print, would make it look fabulous in many style decors like contemporary country, farmhouse, vintage, bohemian, wabi sabi, zen or nature friendliness.
The painting was painted partly in Asian painting style in which each stroke of brush must be decisive, careful but generous and the empty space must be respected for the painter must be in a free state of mind.

Because of the paper's partly silk-like nature, it is impossible to make it completely flat. That's the lovely feature of this paper, each one is unique like fingerprint. The print is the exact duplication of the origin.
