Another of my Causeway Bay paintings, this watch shop in the midst of passing human traffic on the busy streets of Causeway Bay is attracting some potential buyers. The exploding population of Hong Kong and its financial center are some key features of this city. The fast pace of life is evident with the quick walking style of many Hong-Kongers on its busy streets.
The details inside the watch shop were very interesting to paint, as well as the figures inside the shop. The mass of figures on the left are interconnected with a large complex shape and I used colors of similar hues to depict the details of the buildings in the background. It was a typical scene of Hong Kong as there are usually large crowds in busy areas like Causeway Bay, especially during festive seasons.
Prints are carefully rolled and shipped in kraft tube boxes.
HOW DOES YOUR PRINT LOOK LIKE?
Colors on the print are bright and radiant and reflect close to a 100% representation of the original painting. This is due to the use of the best technology in giclée printing and the right paper to produce the desired quality for your maximum satisfaction (see details below). All details are clearly seen and the print will look just like the original after framing. Each print is carefully scrutinized before packaging.
WHAT IS GICLÉE PRINTING?
Giclée (pronounced as gee-clay) is reproducing fine art on commercial-sized printers, with archival properties.
Currently the best software for making a giclée print is EFI u0026amp; GMG. It is widely recognized that Epson large format printers are best for accurate color reproduction and archival ink.
Some people have the misconception that solvent inkjet printers or regular large format printers are cheaper and can be used to print quality giclée. However, the level of detail is far from that of a specialized aqueous inkjet printer. Regular inkjet printers are not equipped with archival ink, therefore naturally they are not suitable for giclée prints.
How does our Epson printer measure up to competitors?
There are a total of 8000 micro print-heads in this printer, with the smallest possible droplet size being 3.5 pico-litres. It provides accurate color output with a wide output gamut. This is especially obvious in prints with multiple different layers of shades and tones. This results in beautiful prints with ultra-fine detail and vivid, lively colors. We use 100% authentic Epson UltraChrome Pro pigment ink - clinically tested to have print permanence rating (see Wilhelm Research for details) of up to 200 years for colored prints if kept under recommended environmental conditions.
Prints are printed onto 300gsm art paper and carefully rolled up and put in a tube before shipping. Each giclée print is hand-signed by the artist himself to ensure authenticity.
