Fez is the oldest city in Morocco and roaming around this ancient city brought me great delight. In this marketplace scene, the play of light and shadow on the items and the people was a real stunner and I decided to paint this scene. arch and the rich warm colors on the wall and patterns on the cloth on the left were highlights that captured my attention.
I saw the above scene when I was walking around the marketplace of Fez. The figure in the middle and the sunlight on the figure and objects caught my attention. I cropped out some parts of the photo to focus more on the figure and items on the left, while trying to bring out the lighting effect of the sunlight on the various elements found in the image. The result is a visually-stimulating piece depicting the everyday life of people in this exotic city.
Roaming around Fez by walking along the narrow alleys can bring you many surprises. I found this mosque with many intricate designs that was near to the marketplace. The designs can be reproduced by using strokes and patterns and pasting the entry ticket on my sketch adds more character to it. Sketching a small part of what you see can be another interesting way to depict details and leave memories on your next vacation.
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.
