Orcas Off Telegraph Cove; banner on silk


Out of stock

This painting measures 11.5 x 30 inches.  Inspired by watercolour paintings I have produced, and places where I have witnessed the orcas during the years I’ve lived on the west coast.


This original painting is done on habotai silk by hand.  I am known for my land and seascapes, and the whales off our local Vancouver Island coast are a favourite subject for me. This painting has been spoken for, but I can reproduce the pattern for interested clients.  Of course, since I do each painting individually, it will differ somewhat from the image, but that’s the fun of owning an original!  The painting will be prepared for hanging with loops to attach it to your choice of hanger.  After the initial drawing (done with gutta), I will use acrylic paints to complete the picture.   This makes the painting light-resistant, so that it can be hung in a window, as a “faux stained glass” feature in your home!  There is no need to frame the painting.  The silk is tough; the Chinese used to use it for armour, after all!  Care of the piece is simple.  Creases can be removed with a steam iron on the silk setting (be sure that the signature is backwards on the ironing board), and it can be cleaned in cold water with gentle cleanser and laid flat to dry.
