Giclee Fine Art Reproduction

Just so everyone understands. Giclee reproductions are museum quality prints. It's the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. These prints mirror the original so much it becomes hard to tell them apart. The process also uses archival inks so that the print becomes fade-resistant and can stand the test of time.

I offer some of my work through this process, If you are interested in purchasing one of my paintings or sketches let me know. Many thanks and enjoy the site.

Cockpit Negative

Watercolor with gouache, Arches HP, 23.5x30 in.

Thought this would be fun. I turned my original scan of this into a negative. It is very interesting to see the flip. A lot of hidden colors begin to shine through. I would like to see this on a transparency but to actual size.
If any one is interested in purchasing this on transparency or matted paper please contact me. This also goes for the original color scheme. I can have a Giclee print made, but that is going to be rather expensive and would require advance notice.

Anatomical Pose

Monica, Graphite on paper/velum 11x14 in.

Over the summer I started going back and working into my old gesture drawings. This one was particularly fun to do. As a gesture the drawing doesn't stand that well but combined with the inlaid skeleton it really brings it all together.

This was originally done on white sketch paper with graphite. I put a sheet of velum on top of the drawing and traced it over again to strengthen the lines. Also putting velum on top allows for my hand to leave imprints all over the surface due to the graphite on the side of my palm. This shows through only once I have scanned the drawing and turned it into a negative.

I plan on making a series of these types of drawings in the near future. So be on the look out for them.
