Magnolia cylindrica 2

76 x 140 | Acrylic on mitsumata
One week later and the bud cases are almost shed with the petals showing their beautiful, elegant elongated and curvaceous profiles mostly reaching upwards before the flowers open fully. This year the tree was completely covered in blossom which has escaped being bitten by frost and snow.

Thanks to the beautiful handmade Mitsumata paper this banner can be viewed from either side. Mitsumata paper from Japan is unbleached and has a rich organic colour. The paper allows for smooth flowing brushstrokes and has delicate edges along with the watermarks of the paper makers Su or frame. After painting I finish the paper which leaves it smoothed and wrinkled in a way that makes the piece look antique.

The banner is suspended from a simple batten and clear thread which can be removed on request if an alternative method of display is desired.
