the alchemist's daughter I

this is a larger original gouache painting on extra-heavy quality watercolour paper

a portrait of a young dreaming woman standing with a small personage appearing upon her hand.... her gown is decorated with many tiny faces

this painting is inspired by my interest in folk art and my own sketchbooks of ideas.... I am currently reading up about the history of alchemy in England. I wished for this portrait to show a girl enchanted by the 'gentle magic' of her world....

It is a larger work that is best placed in a glazed frame (comes to you unframed). The paper measures: 35cm x 22.5cm (about 14 inches by 9inches)

will come to you carefully packaged - flat between boards

this is the original work and not a print

signed on front

PLEASE NOTE: the final photo shown here is of this painting alongside her sister's portrait - I have show the two paintings together to give you the opportunity to see how they look together. However, this listing is for the one painting, 'Alchemist's daughter I' only.


This item will be sent via my standard delivery - first class in the UK and airmail to elsewhere. If you require a tracking number please ask before purchase and I can arrange at extra cost to you.

many thanks!
