In May 2009 I began a series of paintings that would allow me to publish my own high quality prints. With the help of a Bristol based Giclee master printer I believe I am able to produce and supply a superb reproduction of my painting. The prints are published using the finest conservation grade, acid free, permanent paper and to ensure longevity use specially developed archival inks. The result is a reproduced image that is faithful to texture, colour value and clarity second only to the original artwork. The first three images I have available are all 20th Century pieces…I just happened to be working from that end of my historical ‘pallet’ at the time… but I have some very exciting ideas for future work that will take me back through the 18th Century to the dark ages….These proposed paintings will of necessity have to accommodate the time frame of my private commissions but I have set aside a few precious weeks here and there to make a serious start. My first print ‘Heer Grenadiers’ is of the ordinary German soldier …two Heer Grenadiers during the Eastern Campaign , ‘Operation Citadel’ in July 1943. It has an image size of 24’’x18’’( overall print size 28’’x23’’) and is offered in a series of Limited edition fine art Giclee Prints of 250 that include:
Limited edition of 200 @ £150.00 each
40 artist proofs @ £200.00 each
5 single Remarques @ £265.00 each
5 double Remarques @ £385.0 each
My second two paintings produced for Limited Edition Giclee Fine Art Print are from The Great War; ‘The Burning Moment’ depicts soldiers of the 29th division 1st battalion Lancashire Fusiliers going ‘‘over the top’’ at 7.30 zero hour Ist July 1916. The Somme offensive. ‘Trench Pals’ shows a moment of respite and reflection as a weary ‘’Tommy’’ sits with a ’fag and a brew’ whilst his faithful canine companion looks on….. Somewhere in Flanders 1917. Both prints have an image size of 20’’x14’’ (overall print size 24’’x18’’) and are offered in a limited Giglee Fine Art Edition of just 160 that include:
