Walking around Venice in the late evening, I discovered some amazing scenes at the San Marco Square. The buildings and lights from the surrounding restaurants gave this place a warm glow. Tourists were seen walking around and soaking in the romantic and artistic atmosphere as well.
Walking along the San Marco Square of Venice in the evening was a real enjoyment. With the cool and gentle sea breeze blowing against my face and the contrasting warm lights against the cool blues of the night sky, the image was begging me to paint it. I retained the incredible blue hue of the sky, while I changed the colors of the building on the right slightly. I added some purple tones to the wall and used the layering method to paint the patterns on the wall. I also exaggerated the shadows on the ground and added more browns and oranges to the lights and the ground, as well as the windows. The result is an attractive balance of warm and cool hues in this painting.
I also made some sketches of this amazing place as I walked along its alleys and while crossing its bridges. The view from San Marco Square was the sea and the boats parked along the banks with the islands in the background was an iconic sight. Sketching the boats on the canal with the rower and passengers was an experience like no other. The narrow canals with houses on both sides of the water and a boat rowing towards you was a scene that could not be missed and I absolutely made one of these typical sights that I got from turning the myriads of corners in this famous iconic Italian city.
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.
