Street Corner Symphony – The Tit Family

£15.00£50.00

Description

I belong to a small group of artists called Art6, each month we all create a piece of work to a defined theme. Street Corner Symphony was created for a monthly theme of ‘The Birds and the Bees’. I wanted the painting to be a celebration of the wonderful garden birds we have in the UK. I have been thinking about doing some ‘bird families’ paintings for a while so this seemed the perfect opportunity to paint the tit family. Included in this painting are a coal tit, crested tit, willow tit, great tit, blue tit and long-tailed tit.

The original painting will come mounted on a black painted frame – size 12 inch x 12 inch

A signed giclee print is printed on fine art 308gsm paper using archival inks and is signed by the artist. It 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. The following size prints are available:

Size Mount Size (frame size required) Actual Image Size
40 x 40 cm 40 x 40 cm 29 x 29 cm
30 x 30 cm 30 x 30 cm 19 x 19 cm
20 x 20 cm 20 x 20 cm 14 x 14 cm

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.
