New! First edition giclée prints of 6 species of vultures

•April 3, 2020 • Leave a Comment

I have finally made Giclée prints of my first set of Vultures of the World project. (Shown is the Black vulture of the new world.) I printed 25 of each species. They are about 20% smaller than the size of my watercolor originals. The individual prints (25 euros each) have a stamp and signature on the front. The sets of all 6 species (125 euros each) are stamped on the back and signed on the front. Available species: Black, Turkey, CA condor, Andean condor, Bearded, Cinereous.

What is a Giclée print?
A high quality, archival image. The giclee print medium has been a revolution in fine art printing. Recognized as the most accurate printing technique, giclees are 98% true to the original. In fact, without a close inspection some giclees are difficult to distinguish from the original painting. The professional 8 to 12-color ink jet printers used in the process produce a high resolution image of 1400 to 1800 dpi (dots per inch). And because no screens are used, continuous color is achieved. That means no visible dots as you would get with lithographs. Made with the finest pigments and printed on acid-free paper.

Making progress on my nature journal page about the White-headed vulture, a critically endangered species due to habitat lose, poisoned carcasses, and poaching the birds for use in witchcraft spells.
On to drawing the baobab tree, in which they make nests, also an endangered species.
