Mimosa Moon Cyanotype


A unique, one of a kind cyanotype of Mimosa embellished with an original gold ink drawing of the moon.

I have created the cyanotype in the traditional way and then drawn over it in gold ink to create the moon in the background. A delicate process which takes a lot of time and care.

Created on beautiful Bockingford watercolour paper. This is not a giclee print, it is an original work of art size 11.75 x 8.25 ins. It is mounted in a white mount ready to fit straight into a standard size 16 x 12 ins. frame of your choice.  Signed on front and reverse.

In creating a cyanotype the final result is determined by many factors such as the time of day, when the position and power of the sun varies, the temperature and humidity, the mix of chemicals, the type of paper used and the length of development. No two are ever the same. That’s what makes it exciting for me even after years of creating them!

Frame not included.

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.
