Papatowai Dawn

$750.00 USD

First light breaking revealing mist flowing down the Tahakopa River estuary. Papatowai, Catlins, Aotearoa / New Zealand.

This work was created by processing one of my landscape photographs through creative coding tools. Check out the 'Pen plotting' section for more details about the process if you're interested.

This work is a six colour process with custom mixed inks interacting through transparency creating a unique depth to the image.

As each piece is a unique drawing, not a digital print, some natural variation occurs during the process and your drawing may differ slightly from the one photographed.

While this work uses archival paper stock and ink for maximum longevity I would recommend framing, ideally with UV filtering glass, and hanging out of direct sunlight.
