ORIGINAL WATERCOLOUR PAINTINGS
* All original watercolour paintings are supplied double mounted (unframed) using 'conservation quality' mountboard and hinges and include a backing board and 'about the artist' label.
* The papers used are acid free usually 'Bockingford' or other comparable 'not' surfaced paper.
*Each work is hand-painted by the artist using 'professional grade' or 'artists quality' colours which provide purer, more permanent colours than 'student quality' colours. Nevertheless, it is advisable , as with all watercolour paintings, to avoid prolonged exposure to strong direct sunlight as this may cause the colours to fade or discolour over a period of time.
* Each painting is signed by the artist.
