Major Mitchell Edition of 25 Linoprint and Watercolour Original Artwork

With its soft-textured white and salmon-pink plumage and large, bright red and yellow crest, it is often described as the most beautiful of all cockatoos. It is named in honour of Major Sir Thomas Mitchell, who wrote, "Few birds more enliven the monotonous hues of the Australian forest than this beautiful species whose pink-coloured wings and flowing crest might have embellished the air of a more voluptuous region."

I have created the print by hand-carving a piece of lino, rolling ink onto the linocut and hand-printing the print onto the watercolour paper.

I have then painted the linoprint with lightfast watercolours.

Ink: Caligo Safe Wash - Oil-based and lightfast pigment
Watercolour: Dr PH Martins - Hydrus watercolours
Paper: 300gsm Watercolour Paper - Acid free
Paper size: Height 410mm x Width 305mm
Image size: 220mm x 300mm

Your hand-signed, hand-painted edition print will be one of only "25" printed, each one slightly different which makes it unique.The print is sold mounted and unframed. The image can be framed as is within a window mount. Picture framers will cut window mounts to size if you wish to use an existing frame.
