KANGAROO PAW PRINT DETAILS
The striking Kangaroo Paw print is the second print release in State of Eden’s new Natives range. The Natives collection celebrates the wild and stunning native flora that is unique and distinctive to Australia. This colourful piece has been created with an underlay of washed water colour brushed, dripped and sprayed across the paper surface and then topped with layers of detailed pencil. The bold colour and clear pencil strokes work back with the soft, dripped edges of the watercolour to create a vivid but restful interpretation of this hardy, iconic Australian flower.
“When I first envisioned the Natives range I had in my head that I would create a range of pieces that all had the same ‘feel’. However during the process of making this artwork I found that the Kangaroo Paw’s own personality began to form on the paper very differently to the more delicate Grevillea flower. At first I wasn’t sure but now I love that I am finding each flower species takes on there own character and technique. Each artwork is truly unique to that flower. I think the Kangaroo Paw’s resilience and its striking appearance is captured within this artwork.

The artist, Rebecca Garfield, hand signs each giclée print. Print artworks are printed on archival 310gsm cotton rag paper that possesses the unique texture and warm white tone of traditional watercolour paper. UV resistant Epson UltraChrome® HD pigment inks are used to print your artwork enabling outstanding detail and precision colour that ensures your print is exactly like the original.

State of Eden provides professional, custom framed prints to customers within Australia. At this time, framed artworks are unable to be shipped internationally. Frames are available in White, Black and Tasmanian Oak and the frame moulding for all sizes is a classic 20mm (face) x 35 – 40mm (side depth). An A3 print size is pictured for your reference in each of the frame colours. Artworks are mounted with a mat board to set your print within the frame. State of Eden’s custom made frames use plexiglass as this is a safer alternative to glass and also provides the artwork with better UV protection.

For North America and Canada mat boards can be cut to the print size by your local framer and mounted in a ready made frame size of your choosing.
