I sold my newest favorite painting called “sunflower #5, so I’m having Giclee prints made!
I thought I’d show you a few photos of PRIME DIGITAL MEDIA, the printer who has been creating my fine-art quality reproductions since 2006.
The process is basically this (in a non-technical nutshell:) First they photograph my original painting with some really high-end camera. Then Gregg does a bunch of color corrections on the computer until the proof prints match my original. When he thinks it’s perfect, I see a proof just to make sure they don’t need to make any more changes. (On this print, I signed off on the first proof right away without asking for any additional changes–it looked exactly how I had hoped it would!)
The prints are then made on a huge ink-jet type printer that sprays a lot more colors of ink than a regular desktop printer could.
“Sunflower #5” will be printed onto a canvas fabric and sprayed with a coat of lamination. After the prints dry for a few days, PDM will ship them to my studio in SC. I will then stretch them onto wooden stretcher bars, and then hang the first one up in my home!
