Materials: This painting is created on hot-press cotton watercolour paper (Quarter Imperial) with deckled edge on one side and a cut edge on another – some paintings may carry a watermark of the paper maker in the bottom left of the paper.
The painting was first drawn in pencil with compass and straight edge. The watercolour paint is then applied, before the entire design is outlined with a fine-line permanent ink. Finally, the black areas are painted-in using traditional drawing ink with a brush.
