Kookaburra Art Print - original cyanotype approx 4x6 inches.

* Printed by hand, not a digital print *

Kookaburras are terrestrial tree kingfishers native to Australia and New Guinea. Also known as the Laughing Kookaburra due to their familiar call which sounds like raucous laughter. Hearing kookaburras in full chorus is one of the most extraordinary experiences of the Australian bush.

(this artwork is also available in my shop as an 8 x 10 inch sized print)

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.

Measurements: print is postcard size, approx 4 x 6 inches.

Your artwork will be enclosed in a clear protective premium polypropylene sleeve.

Printed by hand on high quality archival heavy-weight watercolour paper. The print will be signed and dated on the front in graphite pencil.

Please note: your print may differ ever so slightly from the one pictured here as each one is hand printed, making each little artwork unique.

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.
