Payne's Landscape, Framed & Mounted Print
After being diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson's Disease at 38, Sophie decided to focus on her first love of art. Challenging and rewarding in equal measure, Sophie enjoys working in different media, her artwork is characterised by a loose, fluid style.
In Payne’s Landscape, Sophie has used watercolour on paper. Sophie’s monochrome composition was inspired by the story of the origins of one of her favourite colours, Payne’s Grey. William Payne (1760-1830) did much to advance the technique of watercolour painting, and was one of the first 'draughtsmen' to abandon mere topography for a more poetical treatment of landscape. Despite slipping into obscurity in his later years, Grey is still credited with the creation of this beguiling neutral tint composed of indigo, raw sienna, and lake which we now know as Payne’s Grey.
Payne's Landscape is presented in our classic frame; created from high-quality wood, milled with simple clean lines and presented with a satin finish. It includes an off-white mount that will not discolour or fade with age. The premium, fine art paper has a gently textured surface, which sets it apart from lesser prints. This a simple, elegant design but please do not under-estimate the quality of the craftsmanship, each frame being handmade. It will be delivered to you ready for hanging, easy-peasy.
