What could be more festive at Christmas than a lovely chirpy Robin perched on holly with snow falling to blanket everything white. The only colour that stands out in such a white world is the red berries and the robin’s red breast.

Giclée Prints – Alhambra Arches & Sing Red

Giclée from the French verb ‘gicler’  meaning ‘to squirt or to spurt’. A giclée print refers to a professionally printed inkjet print using archive quality light-fast colours (6 or more).

Giclée prints are a fantastic way for artists to reproduce original artwork such as paintings, illustrations and drawings professionally and to museum quality.

I now have giclée prints available to buy online too, of the two below illustrations. ‘Alhambra Arches’ is a drawing of interior courtyard arches at the Alhambra Palace at sunset, executed in pen, oil pastel, and drawing ink. The arches glowed golden as the sun went down, the sky turning pink.

‘Sing Red’ is a collage of leaves using various decorative papers, pen, drawing ink, watercolour pencil and graphite pencil. I am constantly surprised by the variety of form, shape, colour of leaf; in repetition to form beautiful structures of canopy and foliage.

Both these prints are available to buy via my Folksy and Etsy shops.

I see Alhambra – 4 editioned prints

I am still finalising the design for my ‘I see Alhambra’ book; meanwhile I decided to edition 4 of the prints from the book. The book comprises of single colour linocuts, which compliment each other through form and colour. Yet I could envision 4 of these prints with added colour, making a mini print statement on their own. These prints are inspired by the decorative moulded plaster casts that adorn the Alhambra; in situ these casts are white, some retain traces of the original bright colours that once sang out from the walls. My prints are concentrating on specific details taken from walls of casts; taking forms that I find compelling, I have redrawn and colourised these images, trying to capture an echo of how these decorative casts might once have looked, making prints that delight the eye and mind.

Here are some photographs of the first proofs, prints drying, and a close up on the first editioned prints.
