Artist's description:

Finely painted watercolour image of a woman in rapture in a little boat journeying towards Sirius on the horizon.
Her russet hair flies upwards and her starry cloak dips into the water. Starlight and bright energy drips from her fingers into the water as she travels along.
Orion the Hunter is the main constellation in the night sky above her.

Since I've lived in Lincolnshire, the wonderful starry skies with no light pollution has fuelled a fascination in me for the constellations. This painting was inspired specifically by Orion and Sirius which at the time of painting are low on the horizon as I look out of my studio window.

I love painting on this beautiful Indian Khadi handmade cotton rag paper.
It is a medium weight 210 gsm weight paper with a deckled edge; my favourite shades are the muted shades of blue, grey and teal.
Here I've used white, black, blue, violet and brown watercolour on the grey-blue paper.

I've been working on this gorgeous paper since January 2016 and thanks to Artfinder made sales to collectors in USA and Australia as well as UK!

I've created some CGI photographs of how the watercolour would appear framed with the deckled edge featured rather than covered by the mount/matt ...

Available unframed, wrapped in acid-free tissue, carefully packaged and sent by Tracked Delivery.
