After 40 years of photography I started drawing in the Summer of 2018, and having sold a few originals it became obvious there was a need to have very close copies of some of these pastel drawings. So I bought a large format printer and some expensive inks and paper, and using my experience in photography and digital imaging I'm now producing high quality reproductions of my pastel drawings.
The original drawings are all made using pastel pencils on a textured ingres paper, and I use about 6 different paper shades including pure white, creamy yellows, rose tints and pale grey.
Same size and price prints also from any of my photographs here.
There are 2 sizes of paper print, both on heavy museum quality natural white matte paper made using pigment inks. Both sizes are ready to frame and are from an edition of 100. There is the title and edition number and dated signature in pencil underneath the image. The paper edge of the original drawing has been kept in the print and as a reproduction, it is as close to the original pastel drawing as possible.

Canvas prints are made on very fine weave 100% cotton canvas using pigment inks. The canvas is then bonded to foam board making it very flat, then given a coat of Permajet satin canvas varnish to seal and protect the surface. This is then framed in a choice of 3 frame colours and is wall ready. The idea here is to have a print very similar to the paper version but framed in a way that makes it solid without being at all heavy as there is no glass. In fact it is so light the weight is not much heavier than a conventional canvas making it very easy to hang on a wall.
The image size is the actual drawing size, and the original paper edges have been kept in the print.The edition is 100 for each print and all are titled, numbered, signed and dated underneath the image before varnishing.
