These Emperor Penguins are a unique style of fine art drawing and painting.
I used a traditional nib based pen and high quality lightfast inks on hand-made watercolour paper with an abstracted background.
This has been painted in Acrylic inks on specialist Two Rivers hand pressed 300GSM paper.
With this style of artwork I create the background ink study first and then looking at the abstract I decide on how best to incorporate an animal, bird or insect into the spaces available. Rather like looking at clouds, I let the composition of the abstract dictate the outcome. In this particular piece the colours and patterns inspired me to do a wintery scene with beautiful penguins. It has that snowy feeling.
It is framed and ready to hang.
Much care and attention is taken in packaging my work for both national and international delivery. I strap the glass with a cross of tape - use detergent to take off excess residue once removed) 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 and placed into another cardboard covering.
