Inspired by endless childhood days playing in the woods at the end of our garden where I would imagine the forest was full of fairies, elves, imps and sprites. I lived and played in a fantasy world of magical tales, dancing light and serene woodland blues and greens where I could lose myself under the enchanted canopy.
This original, unique piece is calm, full of depth, movement and texture. I have used acrylic inks on stretched canvas to give me a freedom of expression and to take advantage of their transparency and vibrancy. I have dripped, flicked, rubbed, poured and scraped the ink on the canvas. This painting is full of intricate details of texture, I have used a knife to scrape away the top layers of ink to reveal dandelion clocks in the foreground and bare, twisting branches curling across the canvas. I have tried to emulate a play of light within the depth of the woodland and used a mixture of teals, turquoises, greens and yellows to keep the tone throughout.
The inks I use are pigment inks making them permanent and waterproof with excellent lightfastness. They are stable on the canvas and do not need to be framed behind glass.
The canvas is 60cm x 60cm and 2cm in depth and the edges have been painted in a soft green that matches a green in the painting itself. It is ready to hang or be framed as you wish.
I will package it securely in a cardboard box with plenty of internal packaging.
lightfast and waterproof acrylic inks and 100% medium cotton grain stretched canvas.
