Cyanotype Fern - Ellie Honl

"Cyanotype Fern" is an original photogram print of a tree fern by Northern Californian Artist, Ellie Honl. The artwork documents one central white frond and two light blue fronds that recede in the background. Cyanotypes are an antique photographic process that produces blue prints. For this print, the artist exposed the fern fronds directly onto watercolor paper that she coated with a light-sensitive photographic solution. The print is signed on the back by the artist and has deckled edges all around.


This piece measures at 15" x 27" unframed. Framing options are available if desired, contact Colibri Art & Framing for additional information.
