76 x 140 | Handmade Mitsumata paper and pigment
A young Cherry tree with every subtle shade of autumn colour from jade green through honey yellow to russet orange. The leaves are painted rhythmically along the delicate branches, shimmering as if ready to drop. Painted in Kew Gardens in November.
This banner is painted on handmade Mitsumata paper from Japan which is unbleached and has a beautiful organic colour. The paper allows for smooth flowing brushstrokes and has delicate edges along with the watermarks of the paper makers Su or frame. in the finishing process the paper has been uniformly 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.
