Angerton Lake from the Boathouse, Hartburn, Northumberland, Original Silk Painting and Signed Giclee Prints
This painting of Angerton Lake in Hartburn, Northumberland was painted as a commission from the clients own photograph. Having holidayed in the area they wanted to capture the special memory of the peace of the lake like a mirror without a ripple. I hope I managed to do justice to this beautiful scene!

My paintings are mainly painted on pure Chinese habotai 8 silk with specialist silk paints. I start each work with a drawing on paper and then trace the image onto a piece of white silk stretched onto a wooden frame. I then apply a special paint called gutta, which contains natural latex called gutta-percha, over my traced lines. This creates a resistive barrier through which the coloured ink will not flow. I apply the coloured ink with a brush and use salt dropped into the ink whilst wet to created textured effects.
The finished painting is removed from the wooden frame, ironed to fix the colour in the fabric and stretched onto acid-free mountboard ready for framing.
You can see a time lapse video of me painting here.
