  • About this work of Art

    This striking hoopoe with his fan-shaped crown, has stumbled upon a whisper of emperor moths. He surveys them grandly while they dance in the moonlight.

    This original painting is gouache on paper.

    I learned how to paint with gouache by following online tutorials and found I really loved the medium. The fun, peppy colours and chalky finish of the paint appeal to my tactile sensibilities as a textile artist.

    I enjoy the way that gouache can simplify artwork – my gouache paintings and many of my textile artworks have a similarly naïve feel to them. I found a freedom in the bright sunshine tones of the paint and I really like the upbeat character of these simple yet strong, eye-catching images.

    This artwork image is 23.5 x 23.5 cm – it will come mounted in a two inch white border in archival quality mount board and wrapped for its protection.

    Please note that in situ images are purely an indication of how a piece may look.
