Making Way (roses) - impasto hand-embellished 20x20cm mounted first-edition print
This dark and moody still life forces us to confront life's changes and how we need to make way and make room for others.
This is a photo-artistic fine-art print (edition 1/50) turned into a unique mixed-media piece. Giclee printed on the highest quality Hahnemühle German Etching 310 gsm fine-art paper, this piece is fixed to a deep cradle board, then enhanced with a hand-applied impasto treatment giving a texture of thick brushstrokes with a gloss finish. To set it off, the edges are embossed and painted in Payne's Grey with a satin gloss finish.
No need to frame - the impasto protects the print from gentle handling, dust, etc.
Artwork size: approximately 20x20cm and 4.3cm deep. Ready to hang with D-rings and string attached on the rear.
Photos show the front and side angles, along with the digital image prior to printing and embellishing.
