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

The boy (Roger) is going to be gently deceived and then kidnapped by the beautiful Mrs. Coulter and her men.

I painted it with high-quality gouache paint (Talens Extrafine for artists) on Fabriano watercolor 300 gsm paper, 100% cotton. 27 x 33 cm. There are some touches of colored pencils.

I will ship the painting unframed in a sturdy reinforced envelope. Ordinary shipping with a tracking number and insurance (if possible) provided with Poste Italiane.
