Handmade Mitsumata paper and pigment
A minimal composition that reminds me of early morning sun. These flowers are light sensitive and open when the day has brightened. One of three banners which could be hung together or individually.
I mixed the pigments for this banner and painted with the softest handmade brush from Japan.
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.
