©2017, 11" by 30", Watercolour, Pencil
This painting is a bit of a departure for me, as it is purely a study in texture, as well as an experiment with a pencil border.
It's based on a photograph that I took on the Dumoine River a few years back. I can recall being fascinated by the rust-like stains that were running down the rock face, and so taking plenty of pictures.
One thing I really like about images like this is looking for faces and shapes in the crevices, nooks, and crannies of the cliff face. Everybody sees something different, and it has been a pleasure showing this painting, and listening to the many comments.
Reproductions of my art are available printed either on paper or canvas. Both formats are signed by me, the artist, and are high quality, full-colour prints of a high resolution scan or photograph of the original painting. All prints are inspected to ensure that the colours match the source and created using inks that are guaranteed to resist both fading and UV light.
These are printed on high quality paper to give them the look and feel of the original painting. In terms of the dimensions listed, please keep in mind that they are approximate. Since I custom mat and frame the prints myself, I reproduce them at specific sizes so that when they are matted to standard matting dimensions, the mat-board borders are consistent widths on all sides. It’s because of this that I highly recommend that you upgrade to the matted version (seriously, go do it now).
Now, if you've ordered a print that is not a standard sized when matted, then I highly recommend that you go back and order it in a frame. As described in the sister section Frames, I do all my own framing using reclaimed wood and am affordable.
If you want to avoid matting and framing altogether, then I suggest that you order the canvas option. I stretch the canvases myself using reclaimed wood and, with a profile that is an inch and a half thick, the art will make a strong statement on your wall.
