Watercolour on 300gsm watercolour paper
Width-44cm Height-18cm Depth-0.1cm
This image shows a mass wash up of By the Wind Sailor (Velella) sea creatures. They look similar to Blue Bottle jellyfish and cover the shoreline with the bright blue of their thousands of bodies. These mass wash up events remind me of similar events on the west coast of Ireland from my childhood. I remember the wonder at this spectacle.
Painted using natural earth pigment and ochres from the Northern Rivers that I have mixed up myself for a vibrant and naturally chemical free paint. These earth paints naturally have high lightfastness. Paper used is high grade Arches Australian cold pressed cotton 300gsm thick watercolour paper.
Sold unframed. This is a watercolour on paper it will need framing behind glass to protect from moisture and marks. I would also recommend hanging away from direct sunlight to protect from fading. The attached image shows this work framed with a white cardboard surround and thin frame.
Free worldwide postage throughout my website. All works sent tracked, priority post using Australia Post. This work is on paper and will be loosely rolled in a solid cardboard tube for best protection in transit. When the work arrives I would recommend flattening the paper. Place the work under a stack of books with the protection papers over to keep clean..
