For this piece of work I used a traditional nib based pen and high quality lightfast inks on hand-made watercolour paper with an abstracted background. This item is mounted and framed and therefore ready to hang upon receipt.
As this is 'The Mute Swan' species I have intentionally drawn and painted this piece with a limited and muted colour range, which is complimented by an energy in the textures. The background is illustrative of a night sky silencing the swan on the still and mirror like water.
Much care and attention is taken in packaging my work for both national and international delivery. This item will be packaged firstly with an acid-free tissue paper to ensure a protective layer and is then sealed in clear plastic cellophane. All corners are protected with cardboard corner protectors. It is then finished with a triple wrapping of bubble wrap with two cardboard sheets on either side and placed into another cardboard covering.
