Artist's description:

There's a song by Mark Lanegan, "Torn Red Heart", that inspired this painting. From the own lyrical work in paint took off in its own direction and story. Within this painting, there is a trio of beings I painted which can only be seen clearly when the painting is upside down...sometimes things can only be seen clearly when all is upside down. Sometimes loss has to be so empty that we ourselves can be emptied, so to be filled with the joy and destiny meant for us... in the torn, in the red, in the heart...something can begin again.

Original painting on Saunders Waterford... is an exquisite English watercolor paper, traditionally made on a cylinder mould machine. Unique for its stunning texture, created using natural woolen felts, and the wonderful surface stability created by the paper fibers lying randomly across the sheet.

100% cotton meeting all archival standards, each sheet is buffered with calcium carbonate to help defend finished pieces of work from discoloration caused by acids present in pollution.
Saunders Waterford can claim status as the smoothest Hot Press watercolor paper on the market. Its attractive surface is created using natural woolen felts that give it a distinctive random texture. The surface is coated in gelatin making it strong and resilient to scrubbing and other rough treatments without the surface tearing.
Professional watercolor paper that comes with the endorsement of the Royal Watercolor Society.
