Artist's description:

Nude figure drawn in intense black Conte Pierre Noir pencil with acrylic and watercolour wash and gold acrylic highlights.

Khadi handmade paper is a cotton rag paper from India is 210 gsm paper with an uneven but beautiful deckled edge. It is my favourite paper and I love painting on it, especially on the shades of grey and blue.

I am offering this artwork for sale framed and ready to hang in a choice of frame colours:
1) four shades of frame: very pale wash, medium brown, black or gold.
2) with or without a mount/mat covering the edge of the image
3) if no mount is required, the painting can be "floated" in a box type frame so that the deckled edge of the paper is visible*
My photos don't show the mount/mat because they are mock-ups, but in one of the 'framed' photos I've shown a trimmed edge and in the others the deckled edge.

It is also possible to purchase the artwork unframed; please email me for a discount price.

The photos of the framed work are computer generated in Photoshop to give an idea of size and colour in a room setting.
Please note that the framed size is approximate.

Upon purchase, please email me with your preferred frame colour choice and whether you would prefer the edge of the paper visible or not.
When the order comes through, I will have it framed professionally in a hand-finished frame with archival mount/mat (if chosen) .

All my artworks are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
This painting will be packaged flat and sent by Tracked Delivery.

Materials used:

Conte Pierre Noir, Winsor and Newton Artist acrylic, acrylic, watercolour, grey Khadi 210gsm paper
