This amazingly detailed pen-and-ink drawing by the highly talented Lee Allen is the first of many—54, to be exact—just the first to be printed, though, because Lee is actually around half way through this massive task, that he calls the #fulldeckchallenge.
So what’s that? I’ll let Lee tell the story himself, but I will say, it’s absolutely fascinating. And I’m very much looking forward to my own challenge, that of faithfully reproducing the rest of these marvelous works of art.
This is a one-person business, and what I do is to make reproductions of artworks using giclée printing. Please browse the posts below and/or the pages linked from the menu buttons above, or just go ahead and contact me.
A pair of nature studies in pastels by Karen Strang (on Facebook), another creative neighbour here.
These charming paintings are by Hazel Ferrie, of Stanley, Perthshire, who recently asked me to digitise and print them, as well as printing some other images for which the originals were not available but which had been photographed. That’s not ideal but as long as the photographs are good it’s perfectly doable. What helped in this case is that there were previously made prints that I could use for colour matching. Hazel was good enough to give me a great testimonial for this job.
More accomplished drawings by Fiona Campbell, whose prints can be bought from her Etsy shop.
Just completed a biggish job for Kim Anne Nisbet, making prints from 12 original acrylic paintings. These are among the most vibrant works I’ve copied, presenting some technical challenges, but I learned from it and very much enjoyed having them in the shop. I won’t show all 12 here, just my favourites.
Local artist Fiona Campbell picked up her prints yesterday and seems quite pleased with them. They’re from two graphite drawings—hope I’m not making too many assumptions when I say drawing really does seem to be her thing. See for yourself—
Fiona now has an Etsy Shop where you can buy these prints among other things.
