"Ombré", Original Watercolour on wooden panel, 30x30cm
This original artwork is painted in watercolour on a panel prepared with specialist watercolour ground.
The panel is 30cm high by 30cm wide hardboard cradled in pine, coated with acid free gesso and watercolour ground medium. Watercolour paint has been applied in layers to build colour and depth.
The final painting is spray varnished with satin archival varnish, then a layer of Dorlands Wax. The edges are sanded and finished in a contrasting colour. The finished panel can be hung or displayed unframed (the cradled edge is 18mm depth), though customers may also like to have it framed themselves (I'd recommend a float frame, without glass, to show off the beautiful texture of the surface).
