Languid River limited edition giclée print available in 2 sizes with 2 cm border. Signed and numbered
Languid River limited edition giclée print taken from an original oil painting. This series of paintings was inspired by long exposure photography. A photographic technique which takes advantage of a camera’s slow shutter speeds to create abstract and unique looking imagery. It’s commonly used amongst landscape photographers, architecture photographers, portrait and street photographers. I love the idea of taking one medium and transforming it into another.
My original paintings are created using oil paints as this medium gives me great flexibility. Oils are so adaptable they can give you a translucent effect for fast flowing water or a matt flatter finish for a slow flowing languid river. The light is important in this painting as it highlights the deep ripples the river is making as it meanders downstream.
has a smooth orange peel texture and a bright neutral white base, it creates really natural black and white images and offers vibrant colour reproduction and great detail too. The paper is resin coated with a fibrous feel. The satin finish of the resin coating gives depth to the image which combined with the texture and vibrant colour reproduction give the image the feel of an oil painting. This is one of the most suitable of the Giclée Art Paper range for mounting.
The word Giclée (“g-clay”),
is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”, Giclee, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve Giclée prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.
I am a Teignmouth based artist and live close to the ocean and Dartmoor. This proximity to the South West Coast and the wild untamed landscape of the moor has influenced my recent work. Water is an ever-changing element that I find fascinating. In my oil paintings I aim to invoke an immersive feeling. I want to highlight the rapidly shifting colours of water from deep blue almost black to pale green nearly white. Following the initial painting and drying process I may apply glazes of oil paint to further enrich the surface of my work. I often return to the work of Kurt Jackson and Peter Doig for inspiration and a sense of place.
In conclusion, I am a member of the Devon Artist Network where you can see more of my work here https://www.devonartistnetwork.co.uk/catherine-kennedy-1 and a Geopark Ambassador Artist for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
