On the Isle of Skye in Winter, the landscape of monochromatic yellow and brown is broken only by the small wild trees that thrive in boggy ground. Their branches, like deep red wine contrast with the lighter twisted bark of the main trunk. I have been fascinated with them for months wondering how to capture the essence of their beauty, I could see them in my mind but each time I tried to create the image I failed dismally. It finally came to me that a detailed view was not what I wanted, I needed to distil the impression they had made into the vital elements of colour and line. Using my camera like a paintbrush, I swept the branches together and my upwards movements created a calligraphy of golden lines that shot through like flames.
This beautiful extra large Limited Edition print it one of only 10 available. It comes signed, numbered and titled at the bottom. I use wonderful Canson Infinity Rag Photographique 310gsm paper which produces rich blacks and vibrant colours and holds colour for a lifetime. Canson have been making paper for over 450 years and their paper was used by Picasso, Ingres, Miro and Warhol to name but a few. The inks I use are state-of-the-art non fade Epson Ultrachrome K3 with Vivid Magenta.
Your print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and is prepared with a generous white border to make it easy to mount. The print is carefully wrapped in acid free tissue then shipped rolled in a sturdy art tube. I have demonstrated how this will look framed but it would look great frameless mounted under acrylic to give a floating effect on the wall so I have prepared an image of that as well. Often for clients I mock up using their room, if you would like this service please just get in touch to discuss.
I photograph and print every image, I do not outsource any part of my workflow. Each print has been painstakingly crafted to ensure the true colours, resolution and texture are exactly as they should be.
By using beautiful Canson Infinity Paper and combining it with the fabulous non-fade Epson Ultrachrome K3 with Vivid Magenta inkset of 9 colours, I can produce a print of exceptional quality which will last a lifetime without fading.
