This Cockerel is a unique style of fine art drawing.
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, in this case a deliberate use of colours for the purpose 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 an owl and I have used negative shape to emphasize the branch.
Much care and attention is taken in packaging my work for both national and international delivery. 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 on either side and placed into another cardboard covering.
