Sunrise Over Cowes
Sunrise Over Cowes
This picture has been in my head for a while. It took three early morning trips up in my friend Mike's plane (doors removed!) before I finally got lucky with the light. We are flying in a crazy tight circles, me leaning out taking way too many pictures. The resulting image is a stitch of four photographs put together. The detail is great up close, though some of this is a little lost on the smaller size canvas.
HOW WE MAKE THE PICTURE
We build everything ourselves in the gallery. The photograph is printed on the very best archival matte canvas then to dry for a few days. 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 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 the 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.
