Lake Sarmiento, Chile – Original Silk Painting and Signed Giclee Prints

Lake Sarmiento, Chile was painted as a commission for an intrepid client who has climbed those mountains you can see in the distance. I painted this from the client’s own photograph which unfortunately means I haven’t seen this stunning scenery for myself…. maybe one day!

If you’d like to commission something special to you visit my commissions page  for some other examples of work I have undertaken and contact me to discuss your project.

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.
