The grass was grey
The birds were grey
Grey animals moved through forests full of grey trees.”
From “The Bird With The Rainbow Tail”
This ink jet print is a reproduction of my children’s book illustration originally created for “The Bird With The Rainbow Tail”.
This artwork started life as a hand drawn illustration using black ink on white paper. I then added other hand painted patterns and textures digitally to produce a piece of art reminiscent of an old engraving. I added a warming filter to the final print which gives a sort of antique feel.
The overall print/paper size is 11.6 inches by 8.2 inches ( A4 size paper), which includes the image plus a narrow white border suitable for framing. I have used museum quality, archival, acid free, heavy weight paper made by Hahnemuhle and Canon Chromalife 100 plus inks with enhanced longevity. The copyright notice will not show up on your print.
I take great care with all my prints and always make sure that they are well protected by several layers to prevent damage in transit. The print will also be protected by a plastic sleeve and will come flat packed between envelope stiffeners, in a lightweight but durable envelope.
