Amethyst Deceiver - Framed Artwork
A common and beautifully coloured mushroom, it starts out with deep purple, lilac or pink when young to later fade to pale brown with age, or turn almost white if the weather is dry. You find them amongst leaf litter, particularly under beech trees.
These artworks are part of series I created for the exhibition of a Natural History museum. I have collaborated with the professional print studio Sandeng who focuses on art for museums and galleries, in order to create artworks with really vibrant colours and depth. I first painted parts of the artwork, scanned and enhanced the colours, sent the files to Sandeng who printed them with their 12-colour printer on my favourite watercolour paper, I then collected the prints and continued to paint on top thus finishing the artworks.
The result is really vibrant artworks with beautiful depth.
