The magnificent oak is captured here with the ancient art of marbling, painting on the surface of water. Colours are first floated on a gelatinous size. Combs and rakes are used to create designs by manipulating the colors. A sheet of paper is then laid onto the surface to transfer the pattern from water to paper! Thus, each work is unique. Enjoy this whimsical tree and see something new in its branches every time you look at it.
The 100% acid-free heavy-weight off-white cotton paper measures 19" x 25" and fits in a standard-sized frame size. Each sheet is hand marbled, therefore colour variations/combinations/shapes are slightly different from the images shown.
