Full sheet – Moulin du Roy – 300gsm cold pressed fine grain water colour paper – water colour and ink.
Botanical name: Xanthorrhoea grasstree, and in older days - black boy, based on the purported similarity in appearance of the trunked species to an Aboriginal man holding an upright spear.
Inspired by the iconic islands of New Caledonia - this image represents the 'Spirit of Place'.
The Islanders face the issues of global warming, now washing their palm trees and gardens and in some cases their homes away!
The funding from the sale of this Artwork will go directly to the Carteret Island People to assist them with their relocation from their homeland Atolls to higher ground! (less cost of transport).
Maimeri Blu features an absolute purity of pigments that, together with gum arabic, compose the totality of the mixture. Imperceptible, transparent, clean. No blending powders, and no additives. Nothing harmonises or synchronises the shift between the various shades. The real value lies in the transparency of its colours and in the freshness of its washes. It is the whiteness of the paper that illuminates this type of painting. The light is behind the colour.
The Series numbering on the Maimeri Blu – represent the level of pigment in the paints – which is the important comparative thing to consider for longevity of your Artwork as the higher the pigment level the higher the UV rating of your colour.
