This is a pen and wash study of a heron, which I see regularly on the village pond. First he was drawn in Indian ink and then the washes of watercolour were placed. It is painted on a heavy weight Bockingford watercolour paper using artist quality pigments. Next I applied silver leaf to the background, before sealing it to stop it tarnishing. It will still need to be framed under glass.
This is a lovely way to work, as the structure of the ink drawing lets you be free and easy with the watercolour on top.
I will send it flat, as I do not like to roll artwork. Unfortunately this does make postage a bit more expensive.
