Rugby Jerseys

We frequently frame multiple photos in either horizontally or vertically.  This is different; the images are watercolours of South Wales locations.  Length 49 inches and 13 inches height.  Impressive. Framing used is Ash and the mount colour is Antique White.

Two, out of a dozen works from Sian Mcgill.  Both feature Gower places and reflect the limestone and gorse so prevelant.  Acrylic on board with pallet knife and brush application.  Framed in ash with a coat of suitable wash.  Go see more at sianmcgill.com or Sian McGill on facebook.
