Gin and Tit – Blue Tit & Gin and Tonic Original Silk Painting and Signed Giclee Prints

This blue tit has slightly more sophisticated taste than those that steal the top off the milk…. I wonder what kind of gin is his favourite.  This painting is part of my ‘Birds Behaving Badly’ series.

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.

A signed giclee prints is printed on fine art 308gsm paper using archival inks and is signed by the artist. Each print will come mounted in white and packed with a backing board in biodegradable cellophane. It is an open edition so there is no limit to the number of reproductions that can be made.
