This blue and brown Painting is a unique style of fine art mixed media work of my own devising.
I use Brush and dip pen Ink/my own photography/digital media/fine art paper to create this work.
This has been created in a range of inks on specialist Two Rivers hand pressed 300GSM paper. I'm aiming for a look that is contemporary but harks back to the etching prints of the 1800's with the image part hand drawn and part transfer in an etching style. Some of the etching gets lightly rubbed away in the process to deliberately create a aged quality.
I create the background ink study first and then looking at the abstract I decide on how best to incorporate the scene into the spaces available. Rather like looking at clouds, I let the composition of the abstract dictate the outcome.
Each piece is completely unique. It is possible however to create other colour ways.
Mounted to 12 x 12" 20 x 20cm aperture.
