This mono print was inspired by the following words by Henry Kuttner:
“It wasn't gloom at all, really. There were lights and colors. If it hadn't been for the feel of the water gliding by against his skin he might have imagined himself up in the sky, with meteors and comets blazing past. But these were sea-things, shining in the dark, the luminous life that blazes beneath the southern sea.'
This is a mono print where layers of colours and textures were built up slowly with a range of tools and fingers and then printed on a Fabriano paper. The light streaming through the depths, shining through the underworld, and little golden flecks of fish darting through the thick pools of water and undergrowth. Blues, greens and turquoise colours are used along with iridescent copper to recreate a magical underwater garden in this one-off unique print.
A couple of very tiny ink marks have naughtily sneaked in on the margins during the handmade printing process. These do not detract from the print in any way, and will most possibly be hidden if the work is mounted before being framed.
It will come titled and signed on the front, and will be sent personally hand-wrapped carefully in acid-free tissue paper and packaged in a hardback envelope for maximum safety.
Made using high quality Winsor and Newton colours on heavyweight 350 gsm acid-free Fabriano paper.
