* Printed by hand, not a digital print *

Mangroves play such a vital role in maintaining a healthy eco-system. They protect water quality by removing pollutants, they help reduce erosion by absorbing water and they provide nursery habitat for many types of fish and shellfish.

This original artwork is a hand-crafted print made by using the traditional 19th century cyanotype printmaking process using a negative transparency from my original photograph of a mangrove tree at Sandpiper Beach on Macleay Island, Queensland, Australia.

Print size : 8x10 inches (approx.: 20.5cm x 25.03cm). This is a standard print size for easy framing options (fits in a standard Ribba frame from Ikea).Printed by hand on high quality Fabriano 190 gsm archival art paper. The print will be signed and dated on the front in graphite pencil.

This artwork is unframed and unmatted but will include a gallery quality FSC certified backing board and will be enclosed in a clear protective premium polypropylene sleeve. This particular sleeve/bag can be reused or repurposed or recycled at a local REDCycle drop off point. Your artwork will also be sandwiched between recycled cardboard for extra protection while travelling and will be sent with tracking.

Please note, your monitor or device may show this image to appear slightly lighter or darker in shade to the original.

Info about the process to create this artwork: The process involved a digital negative being created from the original photograph and printed onto a transparency film sheet. Solutions were mixed to create a photosensitive emulsion which was then brushed onto the watercolour paper. Once the paper was sufficiently dry, the negative was placed over the paper and placed into a contact printing frame. Following this was exposure to a UV light source and the development, rinsing and drying of the paper, resulting in a cyan-blue print of the original photographic image.
