Hand painted reclaimed frames for “Dog Tag” prints

I have spent the last week or so building up some stock of my hand made frames. I make them all out of reclaimed wood from my local wood recycling centre so each batch is different and depends on what wood they happen to have in stock. This time I got my hands on some lovely cedar, weathered pine and the last of the old roofing boards from the Sandhurst army base.

Although the frames are quite time consuming to make they seem to complement the handmade, nostalgic feel of my prints and I’m told they get lots of compliments in the galleries that stock my work.

“Quintessentially British” Hand Lettered Print

Quintessentially British Print

A little while ago I created this hand lettered poster for a competition entitled “All Things British”.

It is now available to buy as a limited edition, fine art Giclee print. Each print is signed and numbered – there are only 20 prints in the edition – which means there will only ever be 20 of these prints – so snap one up quickly from The Enlightened Hound.

Giclée, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process, which combines superior pigment-based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve prints of the same archival quality, light fastness and stability as that demanded by galleries and museums.

The Quintessentially British prints are printed on thick (310gsm) Hahnemuhle natural white cotton rag paper.

The hand lettered print celebrates the unique, quirky traditions and rituals that are quintessentially British –  in very patriotic colours – red, white and blue.

The paper size is approx. 395 x 565 mm and the image size is approx. 315 x 485 mm.
