Northern Lights -The golden compass: original painting


Original gouache painting on paper. 21,5 x 28 cm

1 in stock

This piece is inspired by “Northern Lights” by Philip Pullman, the first book of “His Dark Materials” trilogy. Originally created for the 2012 Bologna children’s Bookfair competition.

I painted it with superb quality gouache paint (Talens Extrafine for artists) on Fabriano watercolor 300 gsm paper, 100% cotton. 21.5 x 28 cm. There are some touches of colored pencils.
The white pigment shows its brilliance all over the final artwork.

Please note: the borders of this piece are not very straight. I suggest that you add a mat when you frame it. I can also cut one, out of thick paper, for you. Send me a message and the desired dimensions.
