From Gallery Resident Artist Mark Braithwaite's From the Shadows collection.
This is the original watercolour of From the Shadows; Hunters Moon, Season of the Witch by Mark Braithwaite.
Nymph-like witches dance with broomsticks under the light of the Hunters Moon; a cauldron bubbles casting a spell, watched over by familiar black cats and owls.
Gallery Resident Artist Mark Braithwaite says he needed something to entertain himself whilst working in the studio on his City Shadows project over the winter.... he chose to amuse himself by painting zombies. When he brought the paintings and prints into the gallery we rather enjoyed the results!
Following on from the success of his 'Zombie Apocalypse' series, Mark has expanded the range to create the 'From the Shadows' collection, of other supernatural beings and mystical happenings. York is the most haunted city in Europe after all, so he's not short of inspiration!
Mark tells us "This is the latest in my fun series of ghostly illustrations, 'From the Shadows' painted in watercolour and mixed media. In the sky I have used Schminke Horadam Supergranulation watercolours which made the unusual skies happen!"
Approximate image size 25x25cm; mounted in a black core white mount to fitted into a 40x40cm black frame.
Prints are also available.
