Unframed fine art print
“Inspiration for my artworks can come from just about anywhere, as long as it involves nature and life. This was inspired by the morning light passing through the leaves of an Acer tree in our back garden. I think sunlight through trees is loved by virtually everyone and I remember loving the warmth and play of light, lying on my back in a grass field, under a tree as a young child. So, you could say this picture has been a long time in the making!
This was done predominantly in Bic biro, but I’ve also added white oil paint over the top of some of the leaves in the background. Initially doing this turns the biro ink blue, but this gradually changes, as the oils dry, until you are left with a yellow/brown aged look. This takes a few weeks to settle into its final colour, so you never quite know what it’s going to look like in the end.”
All fine art prints are painstakingly colour matched, printed and mounted by the artist himself. The prints are done on 100% cotton, fine art paper using specialist, colourfast inks, ensuring the highest possible durability of this beautiful image.
The finished unframed print measures 51cm x 40cm (20″ x 16″).
