Description

Crimson, scarlet and fluorescent pink make a bold contrast with black and silver in this red-hot collage painting of a stylised Ammonite. A great gift for a fossil hunter!

Height: 30 cm
Width: 30 cm
Depth: 1.5 cm

It was created from torn-up fragments of all sorts of paintings and drawings I have done previously, using oil pastel, acrylic, watercolour, charcoal and ink, embellished with glitter and little gems.

The background is painted black; in places I used heavy-body acrylic to add interest and extra texture. The design is sealed with water-based transparent glue to keep everything firmly in place.

This original artwork is on stretched canvas on a sturdy wooden frame, is signed on the front and comes with some guidelines on how you can care for it to keep it looking beautiful for many years.
It doesn’t need framing – the back is finished with D-rings and a cord so it’s ready to hang on the wall; alternatively you could display it on a little easel – or just casually propped on a shelf.

Delivery within the UK is included in the price. I will send it carefully packaged, by 2nd class Royal Mail, within 3 days of receiving payment.

Wherever possible, I use recycled packaging to send out my artwork. This may not look as pretty as custom or brand-new packaging but it keeps costs down and of course is less wasteful and kinder to the environment!

Inspiration

Ammonites are one of my favourite subjects and red is one of my favourite colours. I wanted to use as many shades of red as possible and had fun sifting through my collage fragments to select scarlet, crimson, ruby, vermilion, rose madder and hot pink – cooling down the heat with a striking contrast of black and silver.

Created with care in my studio, tucked away behind a delightful walled garden in the heart of the ancient abbey town of Sherborne.
