A farmer in China returns home with the cows after a hard day's work in the sunset. The soft colors and textures of the mountain in the background forms the common backdrop of a village scene. The dry grass in the foreground is done by using the dry brush technique and colors are muted to convey the mood during a sunset.
As can be seen from the original image, the picture was taken during the day time which was far from a sunset. As the cows and the human seem to be walking towards home, I decided to make this scene to be a sunset scene. I first made the sky yellow and the mountain behind with yellowish tints mixed with subtle warm and cool hues that depicted the textures of the rock. The predominant yellow atmosphere worked well as the scene changed form a day scene to a sunset scene which worked well with the subject matter as shown in the middle of the painting.
Prints are carefully rolled and shipped in kraft tube boxes.
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.
