A ready to hang, professionally printed and stretched giclée canvas print. All artwork has been specially designed to continue around the edge of the canvas (gallery or museum wrap) except where it didn’t suit the image – in which case the sides of the canvas are white. Most canvases are stretched on 38mm bars, except smaller canvases which are on 19mm bars.
From a mixed-media painting created on a vintage postcard. The handwritten side of the postcard forms the base for my artwork, which is variously hand drawn, collaged, transfer printed and painted with acrylic and inks before being thoroughly sealed with protective clear medium. Glimpses of the original text remain readable – other parts are obscured to make way for the painting. Some cards even have clearly visible postmarks and date stamps.
Alexandros in Crete combines one of my sketchbook drawings of a boat called Alexandros with a vintage postcard of Crete.
