Artist's description:

An old castle on Dabube's riverbanks in Bratislava | Original plein air artwork.

The small sketch was painted during my visit to the first large watercolour festival in Slovakia in 2017. Despite an extremely hot August weather, a morning on the Danube river was strangely cold, and I would say, even freezing because of a strong wind. I took my brushes and paper out of a bag and instantly regreted I didn't have any gloves with me. Nevertheless, I was determined to paint as I loved the view! I began darwing straight away, watching how a tender morning landscape started to emerge on the paper.

SIZE: The sketch is small-sized (22x29 cm or 8.66x11.4 in) and close to a A4 size, which makes it easy to fit in standard frames available in city decor shops. To give you a better idea of how big the artwork is, I am including the photo from the scene where it was painted. Thanks to its size, the painting will make a good present for a friend or a family.

TECHNIQUE & MATERIALS: The artwork is done in wet-on dry technique on an acid free archival paper which will endure time without being discoloured (if kept in good storage conditions).

STORAGE: The artwork needs to be kept far from direct sun, as it affects the colours the sketch, bleaching it.

COLOURS: Please be aware that the original colours of the painting may slightly differ from what you may see on your mobile or laptop screen.

FRAMING & PACKAGING: The watercolour of this size is shipped flat, unframed (no mat as well), sandwiched between 2 cardboards and wrapped in clear film to provide a stiff background and prevent possible damages to the painting. It is done in order to reduce parcel's weight and shipping costs. However, the size of the watercolour allows its fast and budget framing using standard mats and frames from your local decor shops or art framing services.

SHIPPING: I will be happy to ship this artwork to your country via a national post courier, with tracking, or any other courier of your choice for an extra charge according to courier's shipping prices.

~ Please note that not all national post couriers exchange tracking information between them, which means that you are not always can track the parcel after it leaves the country of origin.
