The Delicate Balance series explores the over extravagant castles and fortified communities of fantasy and their interaction and synchronisation with the natural world. The first two The Treehouse and The Kingdom were both completely hand drawn and nearly unaltered digitally but the third, The Avalanche I used Photoshop to placed the Kingdom in the middle of the landmasses of the Treehouse because the negative space of the Treehouse is the exact shape of the Kingdom. Pieces and sections of the Kingdom were also then added in behind and in blank spots. As with the fourth, Mountains Beyond Mountains it was largely kept original, except for the clouds which I redraw and altered quite alot, especially higher up. I also faded out the clouds, which on the first two was done by emptying the ink out of the pen and watering it down.
All four of these prints are signed and numbered, limited to an addition giclee print of 100 each. They of a very high quality, printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308gsm Art paper print (420 x 594mm or approximately 16.5 x 23.5 inches). All four are available individually or as a set.
Thanks for your support and kind compliments!
