So I put down my paint brushes and picked up my pencils again... only... they're a bit like the sorcerer's broomsticks... taking on a life of their own, they don't seem to want to stop!
Solar EclipseSolar Eclipse is a mixed media digital illustration inspired by the Carl Sagan quote "We are all made of star stuff" and was created in the weeks following the solar eclipse event of 2015 depicting the "diamond ring" or "Baily's Beads" phenomena.
This image is one of the "We are all made of stars" collection.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Closed-eye_hallucination for further info about the inspiration behind this series of images.
Mixed media painting inspired by Nature - available here as a Ltd Edition print, signed, titled and numbered, together with a signed certificate of authenticity.
Many of my mixed media images start out life as watercolour / gouache paintings and / or charcoal / pencil drawings and gradually evolve through a variety of digital painting and illustration processes. Because my "originals" vary considerably from the finished printed product, I only ever sell exclusive small run (10's & 20's) Ltd Edition prints of my imagery here - and consider these to be my "finished artwork".
Since I monitor all aspects of the output - in partnership with my local fine art printer - you can be guaranteed of the very highest quality finish, using longevity ink and premium heavyweight paper, as well as a cast iron assurance that no further Ltd Editions will be printed other than the two sizes both available here.
I pack carefully rolled, bubble-wrapped, inside large diameter toughened cardboard tubes, to ensure prints reach you in excellent condition.
Please feel free to message me for any further information. I am always happy to discuss my work. I want my work to be enjoyed and there's no greater buzz for an artist than knowing someone loves your work enough to live with it in their home or workplace!
Thanks for looking. Have an inspiring day! Andrew :-)
