Additional Information

Beginnings is the first of my new style using a combination of watercolour and oil paint, I thought ‘beginnings’ appropriate. It is quite large 122cms tall and 91cms wide. It is also ready to hang. My concerns with having to frame watercolour, all the time led me to explore the way you could use it on a stretched wrap around canvas, once varnished the piece can then be hung without framing. I also believe that artwork should also engage tactile elements, behind glass this is just not possible. My aim with these pieces is to capture the light in the Australian bush, (that hasn’t changed – the light still beckons me) sometimes in the morning or late afternoon, when incredible colours appear. The painting also has areas of silver paint where colours are reflected on the surface, making the outside colours enter into the painting and then become part of the whole piece.

The development of this method using watercolour and oil paint has taken many, many months of development and fine tuning, to allow the two mediums to work together. On occasion they are even applied simultaneously. I have always felt that mixed media often looks like a dog’s breakfast, when artists simply pick up any old thing lying around the studio and apply it to the painting surface. This method is carefully considered and planned, so that the final product hopefully showcases the best qualities of both oil and watercolour paint.

As with all of my works, it is an original and a one of a kind, I do not make prints from any of my works.
The paintings are signed on the front with my name ‘Lucinda’ and come with a Certificate of Authenticity. I only use Artist quality materials in the production of my artwork – archival, quality paper for my watercolours, well prepared support for my oil paintings and both use artist pigments.
All pieces are available framed if you would like, please get in touch. My framer has promised me a particularly fast turnaround as long as the frames and matts are in stock, so add another one to two days for delivery (additional cost for framing will apply – please ask for a quote).
The piece will arrive wrapped well in bubble wrap and packed within a sturdy cardboard container, sometimes recycled ( I like to recycle), any glass will be taped to help prevent cracking, it may not be the prettiest on the outside but the contents will arrive safe and sound.
