A messenger from a golden land


A woman wearing a golden transparent dress with a golden bird settled on her finger.

In the distance lies a golden land on the horizon, under a moody, cloudy sky.


Graphite, watercolour and gold gouache sketch on grey Khadi paper.

I wanted to show off the lovely colour of the paper so that forms the basic colour with lots of white, gold and russet highlights.

I love painting on this beautiful Indian Khadi handmade cotton rag paper.
It is a 12 x 17 inches / 31 x 44 cm, 210 gsm weight paper with a deckled edge (visible in the second photograph). Some collectors like to frame to show this edge off, i.e. the edge not covered with mount-board but "floated". 

Available unframed or framed.

Please note the "framed" photo is a CGI to show what it looks like room-size with a dark frame ...


Choice :

Unframed will be wrapped in acid-free tissue and sent by Tracked Delivery.

Framed will be professionally framed to your choice of black or gold, (or please email to discuss) with acrylic glass for ease and safety in transit.
