The train station in Budapest offers a rustic feel and was surprisingly the most memorable spots during my short stay there in the city. The train, walls and sheltered walkway all come together to form a unique vibe that gives its painterly quality.
As I was brainstorming what to paint from my Europe trip, I recalled this train station which I briefly visited in Budapest. I thought the rustic environment was very unique and the train here in this original photo did not suit the environment and thus I changed it to an older-looking train with the right color combination as well. I made a few changes here to the photo; the shelter on the top was added with textural brushstrokes on the top right, and the color change from a warm brown to a cooler blue as we move from right to left, with the area just beside the sky showing a blue tone. The textured area on the top right relates diagonally to the stony textures on the bottom left where the tracks are. The blue and yellow color scheme of the train, figures and sign board relates well together and thus are preserved. The old quality of the houses on the left are done by exaggerating the textured walls by using the dry brush method.
I was thankful to have made the above sketch inside of the train station as the older train was taken from here. Because of this idea, I thought of changing the train at the train station to a more suitable older-looking train. Thus, sketching can beused to improve your final paintings as you never know what ideas can be taken from it.
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.
