IMAGE REF: AUD016

The original artwork of this image comprises the initial watercolour compromised by the later addition of the foreground rushes added immediately prior to its being copied by Havell. These additional rushes, which were painted using an oil-based paint (cheap house paint purchased in a nearby London hardware store apparently), have since turned a grim, dark olive green-brown colour, illustrating the danger of relying upon original artwork (reproductions available elsewhere for $10,000) in determining colours during restoration.

The title to this image is redrafted as shown on the original print, the lack of an uppercase 'b' or the absence of the hyphen is not a mistake. The amazing depth of fine detail in this image only becomes easily visible to the naked eye in the larger of the two sized prints offered.
