In the begining, at Drama school say, there is a time when a young actor has high hopes, harbours dreams and ambitions of stardom or gaining recognition for their craft. This could perhaps take the form of starring in a BAFTA awarding winning drama, a highbrow theatre production or a serious cutting edge film. Some hopeful thespians will even consider it lowering themselves to appear on ... television!.
Alas, those dreams all too often become ashes. In reality they will be fortunate to win a part in an advert for life insurance or lavatory cleaner. That a good job might well involve inhabiting one sweaty half of a pantomime costume, where Febreeze* is your best friend. (*other fabric fresheners are available)
But the show must go on, you are a professional and you don't look a gift horse in the mouth...
This is a high quality digital (giclee) print taken from a photograph of one of my oil paintings on canvas.
Has Been on TV (top) is actually one of a pair. Has Been on TV (bottom) ... not the horse's mouth... will be available soon.
The giclee print will be window mounted, making the outside dimensions approx 8"x10"/20cm x 25cm. I cut the mounts to this size, so it is easy for you to buy ready made, of-the-shelf frames in this size, therefore cutting framing costs. I do use thick mount card, so the recess of the frame should be quite deep.
Frames are not included with the print.
I print all my own images, using Epson pigment inks onto Epson Archival paper. I then window mount them, using Daler cream mountboard and attach a backboard using the same card. When you order a print, all the watermarks will be removed. Each print is signed and has a hand written title underneath the image.
POSTAGE AND PACKING
Your print will be sent to you via Royal Mail first class post to customers in the UK and Standard Airmail to overseas customers. Your print will be placed in a cello bag which will then be packed with stiff card and put in a bubble wrap envelope. I do try and use recycled card for packaging where I can.
For the best care of prints, you should ideally frame them behind glass and keep them out of direct sunlight. This goes for all types of artwork, not just digital prints. I use pigment based inks on archival paper, so the prints I sell on my website should be very long lasting. Any kind of artwork whether it is an oil painting, watercolour, photograph, print or collage, will gradually fade if exposed to sunlight, so do be careful where you choose to display your artwork.
