What is it?
Limited edition Giclee Reproduction
A French term means “spray of ink,” the word giclee is used to describe a museum-quality print generated on a high end fine art printer. In this printmaking process a fine stream of ink (millions of droplets per second) is sprayed onto archival watercolor paper or canvas creating the fine art print. Vibrant colors and rich detailing are the hallmarks of the giclee process. There are more than three million possible colors to work with.
With that many choices my unique color and layering technique can be reproduced almost exactly. Since no screens are used, giclee prints have a higher resolution than lithographs and the dynamic color ranges are greater than serigraphs. Each print is individually proofed by me for color accuracy, signed, and numbered and includes a certificate of authenticity.
My giclee reproductions on paper or canvas are absolute replicas of my original paintings and are mastered to feature the same color and brilliance of the original. The giclee print is guaranteed not to fade for at least 150 years in normal atmospheric conditions. Technology has advanced so much that any watercolor can be printed from its original size of 22 x 30 larger or smaller or as an oil on canvas, both mediums in several sizes to compliment your decor. These prints have lasting value and are good choices for investment decorating.
The editions are limited in the number of prints per image per size. In most cases the reproductions must be enhanced by me to capture the excitement and color of the original.
A note from Howard
People have been asking me for over 40 years if I can paint “that painting” on a canvas or if I can paint it smaller or larger? Unfortunately the answer is a resounding “NO”. With my spontaneous style of painting it is literally impossible for me to copy my own work. Enter, technology, my new best friend. Watercolor lends itself perfectly to be reproduced as oil on canvas or reproduced for larger or smaller variations of my work in either medium. Now I can offer “that painting” any way you want it. My giclee reproductions on paper or canvas in any of my sizes are absolute replicas of my original paintings and are mastered to feature the same color and brilliance of the original.
