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.
Fiona now has an Etsy Shop where you can buy these prints among other things.
She and her husband Tom, who frames her work and generally assists her, had a good North Fife Open Studios event, selling both prints and originals—so much so that they’re already back asking for more prints.
The new ones are Early Morning Light, The Singing Sea, and Woodland Stream. Try to guess which is which!
