Parisien Calm

27″ x 20″

Watercolour and Ink on Indian Paper

This piece evokes memories of quiet strolls through the Parisien streets, stumbling upon charming cafés that radiate an inviting glow.

To capture the soft hazy light of the scene, Paul paints in flowing layers of watercolour, allowing the wet pigments to gently blend and feather.

In select areas, the white of the paper shines through, enhancing the luminousity of the scene.

This piece is painted onto very thick, handmade Indian paper, with ‘torn’ edges. Rather than using a more conventional framing method, which is not practical with paper this thick, this piece is framed using a beautiful ‘Floating Frame’ technique, where the artwork is mounted to a backboard to reveal all of those fantastic edges, with the clear acrylic face of the frame suspended a couple of centimetres above the surface, making for a unique complete piece of art. The accompanying image shows a close-up of the artwork floating within its frame.
