Printed on the super matt finish of Hahnemüle German Etching, this print gives muted blacks with even colour reproduction, and excellent detail.
The surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth colour gradients. It has a delicate surface, so I recommend extra care when handling. Photorag is suitable for mounting but its cotton texture means edges can fray if not carefully handled.
The limited edition print comes signed on the back with The title of the painting too and what limited print number it is too.
It’s a new day’ is a series of 4 new dawn paintings painted as a prayer over the UK.
The Northern Irish scene was captured from a photo from Mussendun temple.
They’re symbols of hope, that a new day is coming. In these dark and desperate times where mourning and grieving are coming place, the promise is that despite all the odds, joy comes in the morning.
These prints are available as a reminder of the new day that will come. One where the Dayspring brings light to the darkness. Each of the 4 paintings represents a scene from one of the nations in the UK.
Each painting has an overemphasis of light, a bursting out of the canvas the hope for a new day.
May these simple pictures bring hope for tomorrow.
To watch the process of the painting you can see a short film here:
The original paintings are now being shown at Foxhill House and Woodlands in Frodsham near Chester.
