Pirate Initial Design
The pirate design works very well with either red, blue letters or green (for an example of blue lettering please look at the boys names in the Boys Names gallery). Whatever colour is chosen for the lettering, contrasting colours are used for the pirates clothing and in the additional illustrations – which might include a treasure map, palm trees, various parrots, flags and gold coins etc.
An original watercolour, it is handpainted on thick watercolour paper and mounted using an off-white acid free mount board. The lettering below is hand-drawn and hand-painted in a script style. Presented in an off-white textured mount, the finished mounted picture measures approx. 23cm x 23cm, ready to slot into a standard off-the-shelf frame. (The dimensions of the painting itself within the aperture of the mount are approximately 12cm x 12cm).
