“A fashionable herbarium centered around the japanese fashion know as Lolita. A fairy outfit left behind on a bed of pine tree needles, after her nocturnal dancing. Dedicated to the classical lolitas, featuring a pale blue dress, Victorian Maiden boots, Angelic Pretty iconic socks and an extremely atypical background for the serie, realized mainly with tea (lapsang souchong).”
Print of “Herbier Féérique” (“Faery Herbarium”), a watercolour and tea illustration by messalyn painted in 2015. Important note : this is a reproduction print, not the original!
The illustration is reproduced on a 30 x 40 cm paper (12 × 16 inches), at the same scale than the original. It features wide margins to allow for the artist signature and numerotation and give you the most options for the framing process. You could even ditch the usual framing mat as these margins are quite efficient. The paper — Fuego Matt natural white in 285g — has a little texture to it, it was chosen for its likeness with creation papers used for painting, as some of my prints are actually made to be painted over.
