The Heart of the Sky

Color Photograph

Created by Yuko Ishii
Exploring the tranquil beauty of a backlit bird in graceful flight, this mixed-media piece is an original photograph printed with archival pigment inks on cotton printmaking paper. Ishii highlights the image with colored pencils to create a painterly effect and affixes the print to a cradled wood panel with PVA. She coats the piece with wax to give the image a translucent quality, and the sides of the board are painted black and finished with clear acrylic—so framing is optional.

Ready to hang. Signed with title, date, medium, size, and edition number on the back of the panel.
