Colourful and well executed wooden oval wall plaque depicting two galleons under sail on a choppy sea, surrounded by a rope pattern border.
This method of burning the outline of the picture on to the wood panel is known as pyrography and is done using a heated pointed metal tool, somewhat like a red-hot poker.
The image is accented by selectively painting certain areas between the scorched drawing, and leaving the natural wood colour in other places.
The darker shaded border continues the nautical theme with an entwined rope pattern and four brightly coloured and happy looking fishes at the corners.
An example of true Arts & Crafts, this type of work is hand made from start to finish.
Approximately 70 cm high by 50.5 cm wide and showing the artist’s initials MBW on the reverse.
