'Pheasant Study' Original Printed Painting

from 125.00

Welcome to 'Pheasant Study' which is an original printed painting.

I really enjoy painting pheasants, they are such beautiful birds.

I love the nickname 'Longtail' which was given them for obvious reasons.   From an observation point of view, they are so different when in flight to standing.

Please scroll down for more details on the process involved.

'Pheasant Study' dimensions are 30 x 32cm

What is a Printed Painting?

I made an original painting, using printing inks - I use Akua Waterbased.  The drawing/painting is made onto a piece of zinc or acetate, then positioned onto damp printmaking paper which is prepared by placing in a water bath, drip-drying then positioning between blotting paper to remove any access water.

Once the paper is ready, the piece of zinc is registered on the press - (measured for placement).  The paper and the zinc is then rolled twice under my press.  Once finished, the print will be air-dried then placed under boards, then heavy books for up to three days to flatten.

To finish, I clean up my print, number and sign with my name, year date and number unless it's an original.

Once the finished peice is ready, I place the print onto some mountboard, wrap in clear wrap and prepare the packaging for sending out.
