Hen Friend - one of a kind watercolour
A chicken joined me on my walk and I felt like a kid again! The crocuses and daisies bloomed and swayed beside us as HenFriend and me - in my happy boots! - strolled down the green, muddy Autumn path ...
This would be a great picture to remind a kindred spirit - or your good and true self - of the childhood business of days rambling the garden with the companionship of a friendly creature.
If this is sold out (there's just the one original piece!) join my mailing list to hear first about the next painting! One of a Kind Watercolour paintings are 100% original and unique paintings. If you love owning and/or gifting bold art pieces that you know for sure no one else will have, these are for you.
I create the hand-drawn lines with light-fast water-resistant Art Spectrum ink and an old-fashioned 'dip pen'. 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 it's 100% cotton Arches paper from France, otherwise it's another most excellent cotton, archival watercolour paper.
This image is about 22 cm wide x 32 cm high (8.5" x 12.5") and the paper itself has room for framing with a window mount! Framing will add around 10 - 12cm (4") 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, reduces the chance of damage in transit, and gives you the chance to meet and support a local framing artisan, too.
If you meet me at a market stall to pick up, I can arrange professional framing for you for approx $130. This takes about 3 weeks ... plan ahead if you're thinking of a keeper gift for a special day...
