Saatchi Art is pleased to offer the Painting, "Dreen Velvet Dress - Dior," by Bridget Davies Art, available for purchase at $1,060 USD. Original Painting: Ink on Paper.
One of the works inspired by a project to produce an illustration to sit alongside an article in Scala Regia magazine commemorating 100 year anniversary of The House of Dior. Watercolour ink on watercolour paper finished with gold leaf. Mounted in a single ivory mount. Aperture size: 50cm x 30cm Mounted size: 68cm x 46cm Imagine the colour and ink dancing on the paper as you paint. This is what I see when I use ink, as it seems to have a life of its own. I don’t know whether it is freedom or fear that I feel before I embark. It can be a fast and simple process but I have to be in a certain place emotionally to accomplish what I consider to be a successful painting. There is a certain amount of control that needs to be executed, knowing how or when to place the water on the paper, how long it should be left to soak, should some be removed, etc. and then, sometimes with a little help, it is the inks turn. It is a little like a partnership working together with the ink… we both have our roles and responsibilities.
