This print, called "Purple Crested", is a pigment print of a pair of gorgeous purple-crested fairy wrens. The original is painted with ink and watercolour. These little birds are so delightful but very elusive. I managed to spot one when camping in the Kimberly, in North-West Australia, but I had to get up very early and be still and patient. It was a thrill to see the little fairy wren and I well understand the addiction of bird watchers.

This print has been made with archival inks on beautiful acid free Inkjet Pro Fine Art Paper. The paper is high quality heavyweight (300gsm) paper. Like watercolour paper, it has a wonderful texture. It is hard to tell the difference between the original and the print.

A pigment print, otherwise known as a giclée print, has a much longer life expectancy than an ordinary inkjet print. The inks used are expected to last 75 years!

Please note that I outsource my printing in order to get the best quality results. I keep some prints in stock at home unless I have just had a market. If out of stock, I use a local company and there is a quick turnaround of 2-3 days.

Print Sizes Available:

- 21cmx 29.7cm/8.27"x11.69" (A4)
- 29.7cmx42cm / 11.69"x16.52" (A3)
- 42cm x 59.4cm / 16.53"x76.6" (A2)

Each print is signed on the front and has a small white border to make it easy to frame.

Colours on your screen may vary slightly to colours of print in real life depending on your computer monitor.

Your print(s) will be carefully packaged flat with backing board inside a protective clear sleeve and sent in a rigid envelope to prevent it from bending.

A2 prints will be sent in a mailing tube. Due to its size and weight, A2 prints cost a lot more to ship. While shipping costs remain the same, I have included some of those costs in the pricing of the print.
