Wild Pink Primroses



I saw these wild pink primroses on one of my daily dog walks along the coast at Portishead. The name primrose comes from the latin for first flower and they are indeed some of the first wild flowers we see in spring in the UK. They are predominantly a creamy yellow colour but also come in shades of pink, white and purple.

The original painting will come mounted on a black painted frame – size 15 x 15 cm

A signed giclee print is printed on fine art 308gsm paper using archival inks and is signed by the artist. It is an open edition so there is no limit to the number of reproductions that can be made. Signed giclee prints are supplied mounted in white with backing board and wrapped in biodegradable cellophane. The following sizes are available for this painting:

Size Mount Size (frame size required) Actual Image Size
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.

You can see a time lapse video of me painting here.
