76 x 140 | Handmade Mitsumata paper and pigment
Bamboo Green and calligraphic delight. This mix of pigments really energised me (cobalt yellow, cadmium green, Verona green earth, chromium green oxide, Naples yellow dark, gold ochre). I used a very long bristled brush and combined sharp lines with both dry and saturated brushstrokes.
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.
