Beyond the Bulrushes was a particularly complex print involving at least 9 layers of colour and a collaged shape for the heron. After years of creating landscapes without figures or animals I felt it was time to introduce a character to animate this composition. I've often seen a lone grey heron standing quietly at the edge of a pond, just biding their time. I love the dusky grey feathers and their distinctive silhouette.
I used rollers and dabbers to spread out the ink then made marks with a cloth and other tools. I built up layers of over-lapping colous by printing serveral times. I incorporated textures by impressing inked up wallpaper and fabric. I also used paper stencils to make the crisp edges.
This giclee reproduction is made to the highest standards on high quality paper. The accuracy of colour to the original is first rate.
