Fez is a never-ending maze of opportunities for making art as this scene shows two men walking through an alleyway. The brown backdrop of houses and walls brings out the unique flavor and culture of this ancient city in Morocco.

I was walking along this ancient city of Fez and these two men with its backdrop caught my attention. This amazing brown walls and the costumes of those whom I saw really brought out the essence of this place. Cultural, ancient and rustic, these elements were well-reflected in this captivating composition. Fez was an endless maze of surprises, and you never know what you are going to find in this ancient city of Morocco. I took away some parts of the left side of the image and added some interesting changes to the shadows of the buildings which otherwise consisted of too boring shapes. The result is a cultural piece capturing the hearts of many.

I made a sketch on the outside of the medina which is the old town square. The brown architecture and unique design of he place planted the seed of inspiration in my mind as I wanted to embark on an artistic journey of re-creating the atmosphere and colors of the place. I used these sketches as inspirations to give me further ideas on how to improve my final painting as surprises can be found at every turn, and nothing beats being in the place itself and making valuable notes that can turn out useful later.

Prints are carefully rolled and shipped in kraft tube boxes. 

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. 
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.
Each product is individually printed and assembled when you order it, so please allow 2-5 business days of manufacture time for your prints.
Depending on your location, the shipping times vary from 3 - 20 working days and we offer worldwide shipping. Rates can be found at checkout. 
We recommend frames with a white matting surrounding the artwork for framing. Frames can be found at your local frame shop or online. IKEA is one of the places where you can find cheap and good frames, and the example frame shown above is a RIBBA frame. For custom sizes however, we recommend the following websites where you can get your custom-made frames done for your prints based on your preferred color, style and size:
