Ivy in Golden Rain – Original Drawing on Cyanotype


This delicate, light-filled Cyanotype is an original one of a kind work of art. The artist has drawn over her original cyanotype of ivy leaves, using gold ink. The Ivy leaves are enhanced with coloured pencil.
It is created on beautiful Bockingford watercolour paper size 12 x 9 ins.
It is unframed.
The Cyanotype process was developed by Sir John Herschel in the 1840’s and shortly after used by the pioneering female early photographer Anna Atkins. A method of photography using sunlight without the use of a camera.

English Ivy Symbolism: Combination of love, loyalty, friendship and emotion.

A belt of straw and ivy buds,
With coral clasps and amber studs;
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me and be my love.
By Christopher Marlow
