Eleonora At Sea
Sometimes as a photographer you get lucky. We had taken the doors of my friend Mikes plane so that l could lean out and get a few pics. Just off the South Coast of the Isle of Wight we flew across this beautiful green ocean graced with one of the prettiest boats in the world. For me, it was a moment never to be forgotten.
HOW WE MAKE THE PICTURE
We build everything ourselves in the gallery. The photograph is printed on the very best archival matte canvas, hand coated in a matte varnish we import from America, and then left flat to dry for a few days. This means the picture can be cleaned with a damp cloth, and the great thing about a matte finish with no glass is that you have no distracting glare or reflections. It's a much more direct experience.
Whilst the print is drying we can get on with making the stretcher frame and the tray frame that the finished canvas will drop into. The tray frame is then hand painted.
Next the canvas is stretched over the stretcher frame. After that, we carefully paint the canvas edges with several coats of the same paint used on the tray frame, so they match perfectly. Then we assemble the canvas and frame, put a hanging wire on the back, and attach a Certificate of Authenticity. Finally Neil signs the piece front and back adding the title and edition number.
We use the very best materials, and I would expect my pictures to look exactly the same in 100 years. They won't fade in our lifetime.
