Hi everyone, I haven’t painted much in ages, I am fixated with bracelets at the moment, but Trevor’s lovely picture @ArtBox reminded me of one of my favourite places in Cornwall and I, too, have something inspired by the place. The original painting was a commission, but they are happy for me to use the image to sell other things like this set of coasters:

Cheers Trevor, I need to learn how to get the best from my camera because I’m not happy with the colour reproduction, the painting simply looks better in the flesh.

May i ask, who painted the Culver Down original, was it you? Like it.

Hi Graham, it’s actually a photograph of mine which I have manipulated into the picture as listed…

It might help to use a photo editing programme just to get the picture looking as you want - I use Picasa which sadly Google have now discontinued, but there are other alternatives - just did a quick Google search and it came up with this: https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2016/03/picasa-is-dead-here-are-5-alternatives-for-online.html

Good Morning, some really amazing art on this thread, I’m putting on my sunny sunshine happy sunflower, I have this in a Giclee Print, this is a great all year round wall decor to brighten your home on dull winter days, and is lovely to see Autumn spring and summer :laughing:
What I love about my Giclee prints, they look like my original painting because of being printed on Watercolour paper, also a good price.My Original painting gracing a wall in a home.

Big up the Isle of Wight crew!
I mean hello. Nice to meet you. I live in Newport…

Sue, that’s a cracking picture, love that! Giclee printing brings a whole new dimension to prints doesn’t it,.

Ah I wish I lived on the Isle of Wight, sadly just a visitor every few years… Now, if I hadn’t met my dear lady when I did, I was on the verge of moving over there…
