22-100 Jardin de Nuit (Pierre) - hand coloured lino print
Sleek, cuddly Pierre is pausing for reflection in the cool starlight. He's lucky enough to have a night garden to roam in.
The title is French for "Night Garden".
This is a wonderful piece for a cat lover's kitchen or bedroom, or, as an image in a child's room, to be the start of stories being told.
There are just 2 hand painted lino prints. One has gone to Pierre's family... be quick if you want this one!
This is a small, limited series (not technically an edition) totalling 2 hand coloured AP (Artist Proof) prints If you love owning and/or gifting bold art pieces that hardly any other people on the entire planet will have, this is for you!
I make limited edition lino prints by first carving a design into a piece of linoleum, then rolling the lino with ink, and then pressing this onto paper.
Once I’ve created the lines, I do all my colouring with Winsor and Newton Artists’ Watercolours. When creating my original art, I use Archival quality watercolour paper, usually 100% cotton Arches paper from France.
The dimensions of this image are about 30cm x 30cm (approx 12" x 12"), and there is enough paper around that for mounting and framing. Good framing adds around 10 - 12cm (5") on all sides, more at the bottom.
I recommend ordering Unframed if it's coming to you via the postal service/s - this saves us both money on postage, and gives you the chance to support a local framing artisan, too. [Hesitant to manage framing locally? Download my new art collectors introduction to the basics.]
If you meet me at a market stall to pick up, I can arrange professional framing for you in about 2-3 weeks.
