“A herbarium for travelers, those who enjoy walking the earth in search of quiet meadows, majestic mountains, deep lakes. Find yourself a nice patch of grass, try the hardest goat cheese you ever had, sketch your surroundings. Wear fine clothes, only to get them caked in mud.”
Print of ”Herbier en Balade” (“Wandering Herbarium”), a watercolour illustration by messalyn painted in 2017. 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 (the demarcation is apparent, due to the original paper not being a true white). 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 — Rives Sensation Tradition Matt natural white in 270g — 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.
