mixed media on 640gm Canson watercolour paper, framed and ready to hang


Ortus no 2 is a large mixed media work on heavy watercolour paper (with lovely deckled edges). I've used watercolour, acrylic inks, inks, acrylic paint and coloured pencil to create a richly coloured surface, alive with movement and texture.
My inspiration came from the wonderfully intelligent birds from the Corvus genus (ravens, crows and magpies), many of which can be seen in our suburban backyards. I am fascinated by natural history and have incorporated patterns made by fossilised Wollemi pine vegetation in the foreground.
I hope Ortus no. 2 brings a sense of magic and beauty to the viewer, deepening our respect for nature.

While framing and professional packaging is included in pricing, please allow an additional two weeks for delivery for this customised service.
I prefer to frame my works on paper using a 'float framing' style which allows the beautifully textured deckled edges of the paper to stand out from the background mat, with a simple white moulding which suits most interior styles.
Included is 97% UV protection Museum grade glass or acrylic glass. This premium product greatly reduces reflections off the glass (almost appearing as if the work is not under glass), and truly enhances the artwork. If you would like an example of this style of framing please contact Bluethumb.

If you would prefer a different option, please contact Bluethumb. I am happy to work with whatever you would prefer!
