About The Painting

Saatchi Art is pleased to offer the Painting, "The Long Day Out," by Bridget Davies Art, sold and originally listed for $490 USD. Original Painting: Ink on Paper.

A painting about what one should wear when walking the dogs! Watercolour ink and gold leaf on textured watercolour paper. Aperture size: 35cm x 38cm Mounted size: 52cm x 54cm 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.
