Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Dancing in front of two rows of trees which are just turning to red, this blue eyed autumnal sprite / goddess / young woman's hair is flowing, flying dark and luxurious.

"This image was first inspired by the actual pale grey shade of this Indian handmade paper that I love to work on; because when I picked it up I then looked out of my window over my lovely garden to see the trees turning russet.
It was one of those dull misty days when even the greyest of skies cannot pall the mood because the trees are so gloriously vivid. Also running through my head was the Van Morrison lyric "On a golden autumn day, you came my way ... " I think this girl is happy in herself, rejoicing in the beautiful colours and serenity.

White, pale green, russet, orange and brown watercolour on very pale grey textured Khadi paper (see the texture in the close up photos)

Please note that the two photographs showing the "framed" painting are Computer Generated Images to give an idea of how it might appear framed, with the image "floated" to show off the pretty deckled edge of the paper (showing a deep mount/matt, around the edge of the painting) - this is just an idea & personal preference - it could of course also be framed with the mount covering the edge of the image.

Available unframed, wrapped in acid-free tissue, packed flat in lightweight foam-core and sent promptly by a reputable courier overseas or Royal Mail to UK by Tracked Delivery..

*Khadi handmade cotton rag paper from India is 210 gsm paper with a deckled edge.
