Featuring a Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo peering through a wattle bloom; this unframed art print is completely hand drawn using Japanese Copic multiliner pens with very fine nibs (.05, .03 and .3) and Faber Castell’s polychromos colour pencils. Read about my unique process (HERE)
The prints are printed in Melbourne (Australia) on premium Hahnemuhle German Etching paper (310gsm/matte) using high quality archival inks, ensuring the longevity of the print.
All prints are printed edge to edge with no border at all. Each print is also hand signed/ numbered by the artist, and is part of a limited edition of 50 for each size. Frames displayed in pictures are not included.
They are packed in clear acid free bags (which are perfectly safe for storage for lengthy periods). A backing board or foam core will be placed behind the print for safe shipment and later storage. Prints for sizes over A2 are rolled and shipped in a protective mailer tube.
The original artwork is sold.
