An original gouache, line and traditional watercolour on Fabriano hot pressed 300gsm watercolour paper. The sky is painted in a deep gouache and has an intense calming tone while the foreground detail, in line and traditional watercolour, is busy and vibrant. The proportions, wide and panoramic are unusual and eye catching, mounted and framed this painting will make an interesting presence when displayed.
The materials used are the finest available, the gouache (opaque watercolour) is manufactured by a leading producer, the ink is waterproof Rotring ink, the extremely fine, traditional watercolour is Schminke, one of the best in the world. Fabriano papers are among the worlds leaders in quality, this is a heavy sturdy paper with a smooth texture, superb for gouache because there are no brush marks in this type of paint.
The shoreline around the entrance to the beautiful fjord, Lysefjord is scattered with amazing little homes or Hytte. Full of charm and very Norwegian in design, most proudly fly the triangular pennant version of the Norwegian flag called a vimple. Hytte are passed down through the family and very precious to Norwegians and rarely become available to buy.
